For quite a while now I've been wanting some new headshots of myself. The pictures I'd been using for my profile picture here on Blogger and my about me page were two years old, so I though it was time for an update. But the problem was, taking pictures with the timer was difficult. The camera can't auto focus when the timer is being used and running back and forth from behind and in front of the camera is tiring.
So I finally got a wireless remote for my Sony. It's very simple, just two buttons: the shutter release and a shutter release with a two second delay. It focuses before snapping the photo and was only $7 on Amazon. And I love it!
I was finally able to get some beautiful headshots that I love. The forest area next to our house made a perfect background for some simple and classy portraits.
