Figuring out the remote control

Me, taking a photo with a remote control.Me, Saturday evening.

I've had my Nikon D40 for over a year now. It's a good camera for someone like me who doesn't know anything about photography, but I've decided to try to take it to the next level. Step one: learn how to use a tripod and a remote control.

Tripods are a pain, but a is imperative to have one if shooting a waterfall!

I still don't have a tripod, but I need one. You look pretty serious about it!

Now, you need to figure out how to set the timer when doing self portraits to keep the remote out of the shot :)

I find tripods really open up opportunities, especially in low light conditions. You can expect to spend around $300 on a good tripod & head. Resist the temptation to put a good camera on a cheap tripod! I run 3 different Bogen/Manfrotto rigs, and would not buy any other brand.

Have fun!
