Genre: Conceptual blending

ins01.gif Four women hoist a smartphone camera using a purpose-built monopod with a shutter-control extension to take a group self-portrait. Not only does this eliminate the need for a tripod and self-timer or cable release (or the need to ask a stranger to take a picture of the group) but it also sets the camera at a high vantage point, affecting the style of the images taken.
