Hello to all shoppers from everywhere. I am Demetrius from Houston, and I've just started this type of business via another app. I like what I've done so far. But how do you catch the wide angle, entrance, rear of store, and front aisles without looking suspect or drawing to much or the wrong attention?
I'm open to any suggestions, pro tips, neat tricks, anything. I'm always polite as possible, even almost down right apologetic. Just need some tips for those funny looking moments & stares....
When you are taking photos of buildings or stores, if anyone asks, just tell them you are a lover of architecture! Or, you can pretend you are taking a selfie but instead of the camera pointing at you, point it in the direction you want to take the photo. I know these are silly suggestions and I'm just being funny. I personally just take the photos very quickly and don't worry about anyone looking. How do they know I'm not just checking my texts or emails?
Hopefully, someone else will have other ideas on how to take photos and remain undetected.
Demetrius. You asked a question about taking photos , and Melissa provided you with a couple of examples, which she called it silly suggestions. However that is a tactic that I often use if the location is busy with a great number of people around. I will often turn and snap the photo with it appearing that I was taking a selfie,, but I have the camera turned the wrong way. I am an old guy, so if anyone ever looks at me funny, I am sure they just say ,'' oh look that poor old guy thinks he is taking a selfie and he is actually snapping the front of the building, Isn t that funny!"
I also will make sure that the sound is turned off,( and that means the phone is on silent AND the volume for all items is placed at ZERO) and the flash is also turned off. You can then snap your pics without worrying about the distinctive 'snap" of the camera or the illuminating flash alerting anyone in the immediate area. that someone has taken a picture.
