Shutter Release

I posted this picture recently on my 365 blog and received a comment about the remote.  Luckily, these remotes are actually quite affordable.  I bought mine on amazon for $25.  I found a similar one for Nikon here.   I have even purchased a $1.00 version in the past.  The reviews on it said they failed half the time, but I decided that for $2, I could take a chance on one, and still be ahead.  Fortunately, they both worked!  Unfortunately, the battery eventually dies, and then I couldn’t find it again to replace the original.  But for moms who are perpetually wishing they could be in just one of the pictures in the family scrapbook, this is a winner.  Ever since my sister-in-law moved away and I was left trying to point a DSLR at arm’s length back at myself, I decided this was going to be the answer.  Definitely worth the investment for me.

 I’m pretty sure I have taken a couple of non-kissing pictures with that remote.  I just couldn’t think of any on the spot.  😉

    I love these! Even if they are kissy! 🙂 So glad there is a solution for when your sister-in-law is not around. 🙂ReplyCancel

    I decided at the middle of the post to comment that I love that hat on you. But when I got to the end, the real burning question was why on EARTH didn’t you use THAT picture for the Christmas card?! It’s awesome!!ReplyCancel

    I didn’t use that picture on the Christmas card because we just didn’t get it in time. You might see a re-take for next year, though…ReplyCancel
