Selfie Saturday - Jumping Challenge

 Sunday, April 24, 2011

I haven't participated in Selfie Magic's self-portrait challenge in a few weeks now, but this week seemed like too much fun to miss! Elena gave a great tutorial on shooting yourself in a jumping shot!  This is really tricky when working with a tripod and self timer mode.  The camera beeps faster when its about to take the picture, but do you jump when the beeping first gets faster, or wait till the end and then jump?? The timing is definitely a bit tricky and I got quite a few shots with my feet still on the ground or barely off the ground.  But I did get a couple "money" shots! If you haven't tried this yet, I recommend it! Once you get over the fact that there's probably people looking at you like you're crazy, its lots of fun!

That's what I'm concerned about...the timing. But I can't wait to try it out!

Fun shots!! And I can definitely see how jumping to a timer would cause some difficulties! :)
