I am loving my DSLR Nikon D3000. Best investment ever! I also got a tripod/mono-pod for Christmas. Since I was pretty sure the tripod was coming my way I ordered a cordless remote. Ya'll get a remote! That setting the timer and running deal is over-rated! We love using the tripod & remote. In our beach pictures from the last post, we probably spent over an hour on the beach setting up in different spots. I'm sure people thought we were crazy. And my sweet Michael just goes along with all my crazy ideas (expect when his hair was blowing).
So typically our self-portrait set-up involves me sitting in front of the camera snapping a few pictures (with the remote). While Michael is adjusting the camera settings (we'll all manual these days) and the tripod height.
I hear the point of the remote is too look nonchalant...remote out of site...just a normal picture. Not so much when I'm involved. I thought I'd post my favorite examples that we get a kick out of.....It's sad to know that I'm the one snapping the pictures yet I look so stupid....and I'm not trying to pose in any of these...promise!
Not sure why I was snapping while he's trying to get in the pictures.
This last set shows what always happens next....
Yep, he takes the remote away!
