Wednesday Photography Tips: SELF-TIMER


Using Self-Timer to its Potentials

Do you use your camera’s self-timer? It is not just for taking pictures of yourself; it has more uses. Here are a few tips on using the camera’s self-timer more creatively.

Most digital cameras offer at least two different self-timer, a 10-second and a 2-second timer.

The 10-second timer provides a longer time, so you can jump in front of the camera and join the gang to capture a group shot or a self-portrait.

That is the function I use pretty often.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”27184″ img_size=”600×600″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeIn” title=”2-second Self-Timer”][vc_single_image image=”22341″ img_size=”600×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeIn” title=”2-second Self-Timer”][vc_column_text]
