Christopher finally upgraded his Samsung S3 to the newest Samsung S7 just before we left for Europe.
With a new phone comes fun new features and learning how to use them all.
This includes the fact that when you take a photo on his S7 you can press the screen and the phone with automatically focus on the spot you touch and fix the lighting for that area as well. A super cool feature!
However, this feature doesn’t work in selfie mode.
Instead, when you touch the screen in selfie mode it takes a photo.
You guys, we seriously kept forgetting this so we have all these hilariously terrible selfies with us touching the screen trying to get his phone to focus on what we want it to focus on.
And clearly I need to share these terrible photos with you. 😉
Underneath a waterfall in Switzerland. This was when we first found out that this feature doesn’t work in selfie-mode. We took like 6 photos in a row before we realized it, ha! Also, please note Christopher’s horns. 😉
Same day in Switzerland. This was near the beginning of our trip so we had trouble remembering that this feature didn’t work.
And then in Athens. This was the end of the trip so we really have no excuse for not remembering, ha!
And then finally… this lovely shot in the Cinque Terre. This one wasn’t a problem because of us touching the screen. Oh no, this one is terrible because of my face.
This is one of Christopher’s favorite photos because he finds it so hilarious. What is this face I am making?! Horrible, that’s what. 😉 I had been smiling quite prettily at the camera when this girl walked up behind us and stood in the background of our photo (which happens a lot when traveling in touristy areas so no big deal). So I made this silly face that was supposed to be a “yikes” face, but it just looks horrible. Hence why Christopher finds it so hilarious.
So there you have it. We have lots of beautiful photos and video clips from our time in Europe, but there are some terrible ones too. And you just got a taste of the worst of it. 😉 Just keepin’ it real, my friends.
Are you good at taking selfies? Any tips for us??
Does anyone else’s phone have a feature like this one?
