Re­mote con­trol

Photo Plus - - The Apprentice -

A Wire­less re­mote con­trol is es­sen­tial for sharp shots with long du­ra­tion ex­po­sures, and es­pe­cially at night. Just the act of press­ing the shut­ter but­ton can cause cam­era shake, re­sult­ing in a blurry, duff shot. Plus if your ex­po­sure is any­thing over 30 sec­onds (and if you’re tak­ing two ex­po­sures, with a longer one for the darker land­scape ar­eas in shot) you need a re­mote con­trol to hold the shut­ter open for long du­ra­tions such as 10 min­utes and more. “I also use my wire­less con­trol so I can fire my cam­era re­motely for cool self­ies while I stand in shot with my head torch beam­ing up into the sky,” says Alyn.
