Create A #Periscope Studio With Items You Already Own #DIY

July 27th, 2015 by Christen Chances are, if you're a fan of all things trending in the world of social media, you're already a few steps ahead of the game and are using Periscope, Meerkat and SnapChat with reckless abandon. If you're looking to create your own mobile Periscope studio, I've found a way that'll help you do just that and chances are, you'll be able to create your portable studio with items you already own.   periscope    

What you'll need:

1 smartphone

1 headphones w/ mic OR mobile lavaliere

1 Selfie stick

1 tripod

    periscope1 Create The New Tripod If you have selfie stick (by now, we should all have one, right?) simply unscrew the smartphone bracket (or clamp) from the selfie stick.  Once detached, you will notice your tripod has the same bolt available to secure the bracket onto.  (Note: The selfie stick bracket can fit most tripods of any size. I chose to attach it to the desktop tripod for illustration purposes.)   periscope   Create Your Audio Source Using your smartphone earbuds, you can simply input them and use the microphone to record audio.  If you want to be a little fancier, invest in a smartphone lavaliere with attachment clamp and you'll have professional sound and a periscope video you'll love.   periscope

Take photos without even touching your phone!   During a recent trip to Dallas, Texas - I put the Satechi shutter button to the ultimate selfie test! I propped my iPhone 6 on top of a poolside shelf (supported by a few books and knick-knacks to angle my smartphone to the desired height.) After stepping poolside, I simply placed the Satechi remote in my pocket and began snapping away.  Since the phone was about 15 feet away, it was difficult to see if the photos were in fact being captured, but after taking a look - I found this!     I definitely could not have captured this photo with a selfie stick!  Could you imagine the swimming pool carnage if my phone slipped through its' grips and fell in?  That's just one of the many reasons why the Satechi shutter button is my new selfie snapping companion this summer! It's compact, reliable and snaps the perfect blur-free photos everytime!   Satechi Bluetooth Shutter Button
