Again my how to series, how did I hang the phone and that too having self portrait and minimal editing? Simple!

Two ways I tried to achieve what I wanted to!
Trial 1: Keep camera on and try to have a live self portrait
Trial 2: Take self portrait and experiment with that


Trail 1: Details
1. Place the phone at the center of the hand, my daughter was holding the phone
2. Focus at the center of phone
3. Switch the auto focus to manual
4. Switch the camera to multi-shot mode
5. Make sure aperture is wide enough and high speed with ISO to compensate that
6. Do multi clicks and drop phone at the same time.
7. First row you can see the situation of live camera and it point some random location as the motion gesture and drop of the phone will not always keep the phone facing towards camera
8. Resulted into my face shows up at not expected position in the camera

Trail 2: Details
1. As you see in the STAR photograph top right
2. take self portrait, hold in hand, you can very well see my hand postion doesn't match in the way self portrait is :)
3. Place the phone at the center of the hand
4. Focus at the center of phone
5. Switch the auto focus to manual
6. Switch the camera to multi-shot mode
7. Make sure aperture is wide enough and high speed with ISO to compensate that
8. Do multi clicks and drop phone at the same time.
9. Second row you can see the situation of that self portrait visible in the camera, since the photograph was pre-taken so whatever angle phone goes, you would see the same shot!
10. Resulted into my face shows up as expected position in the camera

EXIF of of the shot is also there :)
