Step by step Slice of life
Want to show people the world as you see it? On your bike!
01 Feet and hands
Photographing your feet or just one hand is easy – you can simply point and shoot. If you want to include both your hands, hang your camera around your neck, switch to Live View and compose the shot, then use the self-timer to get your hands into the position you want.
02 Strap in place
If you want to shoot sports then you’ll need to keep your Nikon stable. Get hold of an SLR chest strap, which wraps around your waist and holds the camera snug against you. They cost around £20/$35 on eBay, or you could make your own from stretchy material.
03 Speed it up
The aim of a shot like this is to keep your hands and handlebars in focus while the rest of the scene blurs, creating a sense of speed. Switch to shutter-priority (S) Mode and pick 1/300 sec, then select the interval timer, and shoot until you’re happy with the result.
