My camera came with a short little wire tripod that I've barely used. I was at the barn a few weeks ago and it occurred to me that I could set the tripod up in the grass, turn on the self-timer, and take pictures of myself with my horse. I've been wanting some nice photos with her, and have no desire to pay someone to take them for me. So I set up the tripod and took some pictures. It was so much fun, I did it again the next day. And the next. The second day, I discovered that I could change the self timer from 2 shots at a time, all the way up to 10 shots at a time. The 10 shot feature was great, because it allowed enough time for movement between the 1st and 10th shots, so I could get more variety. Here are some of the best shots I got. I'm usually against cropping my photos, but I did crop the ones I took in these photo-shoots, because it is a lot harder to set up the perfect image when you are taking photos of yourself!
This is one of my favorites...one of my friends photo-shopped the power lines out of the sky for me!
It came out so well, I ordered it on a canvas to hang on the wall in my apt.
Here are a few other photographs I took recently that I really like.
