A few weeks ago when I started this project – I wasn’t sure what direction it was going to go. My first shooting session I was fumbling around, trying to figure out how the wireless remote worked, and trying to work out how to get what was in my head into my camera.
My second attempt was much better. I had figured out my lighting and mastered the remote. The third attempt started out great until I remembered a comment I actually made about a friend of mine shooting a time lapse movie on their camera. I had this feature on my camera. I set it up and went about shooting a great number of images in a short period of time.
I knew, as long as I stayed within a certain distance from the camera after I focused, I could simply move myself within the frame and get the images I wanted. I became much more comfortable moving and not having to fumble around with the remote for every shot. If you have this option on your camera – use it! It’s a lot of fun
