I found a trick last fall while deer hunting...

Most new phones allow you to use voice control (My phone is a Galaxy S8). Once you turn it on, you just say "cheese" or "shoot" and it will take pictures. With my deer, I just kept saying "cheese" while moving around. I took 10 pictures in a minute or so. It let me get a bunch of different poses without messing with a traditional timer...

A small tripod and cell phone clamp is also needed but those are really cheap on Amazon.

Also a good for when you are digiscoping.

Dang! That is actually a good tip rather than getting up and resetting the timer 10 times. Just tried and had to turn on the voice control in the setting, but easy peezy..

That’s one smart phone.

I have a cheap Bluetooth remote shutter trigger for my phone. But ever since I bought a real camera last fall, I find cell phone pics pretty cheesy.

From: Inshart

yup thanks, great tip. Just took a bunch of pics of my key board and bowsite screen. works great.

You can also record video and go through all your poses while it records. Then capture screenshots or pics from the video. Oftentimes a good pic vs a great pic is only a frame difference.

I have an iPhone 5s, old tech. You have to say "Apple with a bite taken out of it......"

So help me out here I might be missing something. I say hey Siri take a photo and my phone opens up all the way to where the camera is on but doesn’t actually take the picture. Am I missing a step or is that as far as the automated process goes?

From: longbeard

Damn I had high hopes for this one

From: Ziek

Evidently there is a free app you can download to do this on an iPhone.

I couldn't find the setting on my phone. I looked at my daughter, thinking that I might be able to tell her something she didn't know, and told her about the feature. She pointed her phone at me, said CHEESE and shook her head. Lol

Longbeard. Not possible on my iPhone se. Can get camera on but can’t take a photo with Siri

From: Treeline

Finally figured out what Siri is, i think. But she won’t take a picture!

Works great for digiscoping

My phone will take the picture when I say "Whiskey". Much more fun than cheese.

Try the Hey Camera app for iPhone. Seems to work pretty well.

iPhone users...start a video...go to your hero shot position and just start doing different poses...twisting head(antlers) slowly for different views, move around yourself with different setups, etc. Make sure to pause for a second or two when you think you have the pose you want. Then edit the video, frame by frame, taking screenshots when you see ones you would like a still shot of. Takes a little time but you can get some good pictures this way that you might not have planned for. I also do the timer thing just to make sure.

Awesome tip.. Somebody Stop Me!!!

This is great! Thanks for the tip.

Yet another reason why I don't like Apple, IOS, and their proprietary closed operating system.

From: Ziek

Jaq, you're out of date. As I said above, there are apps for iPhone that will allow you to take a photo with voice command . Just Google it.

Well, ain't that slick!

I had no idea...works like a charm...Thanks, Tim!

Da hell! And here I had been getting up 1,000 times to check the pic, readjust, etc etc. This is great!!!

I down load the Hey Camera app to my Iphone 8+. It is free and seems to work well.

And for those of us that don't have one of those newfangled phones (hey, don't judge, lol), I've done the same thing with a trail cam. Mount it to a tree, set to take as many pics as possible, sit with your trophy and keep moving it's head as how you want the pics. Worked well and only had to edit (crop) the date, time, etc out of the pics.
