  Tips For Using A Self Timer For Better Pictures  
 

To get great looking pictures, it is often important to have a steady hand. What if you are struggling with this area though, it happens all too often. In fact, many people will have trouble getting that perfectly still shot. One way to get around this is to use a self-timer or a remote to control when the picture is taken. If you can keep your hands off the camera, you likely can have better-looking pictures.

What Is A Self Timer?

Many cameras, especially digital cameras, are now designed to incorporate a self-timer. Just like any other timer, when activated, the timer begins to tick down. When it gets to 0, it will trigger the shutter to go off, taking your picture for you. In cameras, this can be very important to have because it gives you the ability to take pictures with yourself in them or to take pictures that are steady, even shots.

Here's how to use a self-timer well.

  1. Read the manual from your camera to learn the particular way of activating the self-timer on your camera. Some are a bit different from others in how they work, too.

  2. Set up your shot. Even if you just are getting a group together, do invest the time in doing this. Align everyone properly. Place the camera on a flat, steady surface other than in your hands.

  3. Press down on the keys to activate the timer. You may need to hit the shutter button after this to tell the camera what to do.

  4. The timer will begin to count down. It usually only gives you about ten to fifteen seconds and then will take the picture.

  5. Leave the camera alone for about five to ten seconds after the picture has been shot. Check it out, if digital to make sure you got the shot.

Another similar option is the remote control. If you have upgraded your camera to include one, they work in a similar way. What is nice about these is that you can easily use them for any of the pictures you wish to take by setting the camera up and snapping the shot from any distance you are in.

Using these features on a digital camera is the best way to get the best shot. When quality matters and you do not want the blur of movement, do invest in these methods.
