Point of view
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.
