    This is how we can use the phone to take photos more easily or in a more traditionally comfortable manner
    .
    For example, if we're holding our phone, and we want to take a photo, we might find it difficult to press the photo at the bottom of the screen. It can be much easier to use the volume buttons.

    On the other hand, if the phone is on a tripod or a stand, it can be much easier to use the volume up and down buttons on the headphones or use the built-in timer to take a photo
    .
    The timer is discussed in another tutorial, which can be found on this website.
