Instagram or OnlyFans? - buy cheap lights.. or get a point and shoot.

DSLR + self timer is a horrible idea if you want to take spontaneous or intimate selfie type photos.

Either get a cheap set of lights (amazon does a starter set for < $50 which fold up to fit in a nightstand drawer - though $150 will get you a much better set).

Look for LED continuous lights with a stand - and if you want to do "glamour" type lighting then buy a couple of shoot through umbrellas.

This should let you continue with your phone.

If you want to continue with the natural light look then check out compact cameras like the Canon PowerShot G5 X II or the Panasonic Lumix DC-LX100 II - both are small enough to put on a selfie stick.

Good luck.
