Thanks to Mtbr member “Ska” for this photo submission!
How often have you been out riding by yourself and thought, “Man…this would be an awesome shot, too bad I don’t have someone who can snap a photo of me riding with this great scenery!” Well, if you have the patience and time, using the self-timer feature on your camera can produce some amazing shots!
We have several great examples of what can come out of a camera with a self-timer. Sure, having a tripod helps but most of us don’t ride with one, so you may have to get creative with the shot setup. Getting the timing down takes patience and practice, some of the shots shown below and in the discussion thread took a dozen times are more to get right.
For more examples, tips and pointers on how to capture self-timer shots, check out the “Self timer passion! Post ’em up!” discussion thread in our Mountain Bike Passion forum. Check out more cool photos and if you have some yourself, join our forum and share!
