Point of view

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

If you’re up for a chal­lenge, and don’t mind a bit of trial-and-er­ror, a fun way to get in on the ac­tion – quite lit­er­ally – is to cap­ture some­thing you’re do­ing from your own point of view, such as moun­tain bik­ing, ski­ing, or, in the case of our im­age on the right, spin­ning kids around at arm’s length.

The trick with this sort of im­age is to pre-fo­cus at the cor­rect dis­tance, and then at­tach your Nikon se­curely to your body us­ing some­thing like an OP/TECH Sta­biliser Strap (optechusa.com). You can then set your Nikon to self-timer mode with, say, a 10-sec­ond de­lay; hit the shut­ter release; start cy­cling, ski­ing or spin­ning; and wait for the cam­era to take a shot. Try ex­per­i­ment­ing with shut­ter speed, too.
