I take many photographs, of all sorts of things, but not very often am I in the photograph. So this weekend I decided to do a family shoot. All organised with a tripod, reflector and a handy little remote to fire the camera. Reflector balanced on the washing basket, angled correctly. Remote hanging off the side of my camera, husband and 10 month old son posed and ready (read: husband trying to entertain our active son until I was ready). Everybody ready….aah the remote decided to stop working.
So I reverted to the lovely old method of a 10 second self timer and a crazy run around the camera to get into position.
