Sjana Earp reveals the secrets behind her bikini snaps

Australian model and blogger, Sjana Earp, is known for her stunning bikini snaps and incredibly bendy yoga poses on social media.

And while many believe the 22-year-old’s idyllic photos are taken by a professional, most of them are actually taken by Sjana herself.

So to help her followers understand how she takes them, Sjana took to her YouTube channel to vlog the entire ‘awkward’ process – and it’s surprisingly simple.

'First thing’s first you always need to clean the camera - there is nothing worse than if it goes somewhat foggy because you haven’t done that,' she said

‘I take the majority of my photos. Yep, even the ones where I’m balancing on my head,’ Sjana revealed in a recent post. 

‘In fact, I’d say 95 per cent of the photos on my profile are captured with my self timer on my iPhone.

‘And I’ve done it like this for YEARS! Seriously, since 2013 when Instagramming first started to become a “thing”. Only back then, I was embarrassed to admit it.’

‘It makes me giggle every time someone thinks I have a full time photographer following me around because the reality is far less glamourous and much more clumsy and awkward.’

‘Firstly you grab your iPhone – I open it up and go to an app called timer app and it pretty much is just a camera and it’s got options on here to either use a 10, 15 or 30 second timer,’ Sjana said. 

‘I put it on 15 or 30 depending on the shot I want to take and will somehow set it up on a rock or sit it in the sand and then I will run away, do the yoga pose or whatever pose it is and then I will run back and check it.

‘I’m going to use a rock as a stand and I will run over there and do a pretty pose and I will show you guys the result,’ she said. 

‘I have a couple of outfits and I’ll do some yoga poses too.  

‘Hopefully that gave you some insight into exactly what I do to get my photos – I do take the majority of them by myself.’
