Tipster Of The Day: Can You Release My Cable?

On taking photos at low light conditions especially at night when long exposures are inevitable they say to hold your breath, let your index finger depress the shutter button and just wait for your LC-A's second click.

On taking photos at low light conditions especially at night when long exposures are inevitable they say to hold your breath, let your index finger depress the shutter button and just wait for your LC-A’s second click.

Then you realised you’re looking too good tonight that you can’t miss taking some portraits of yourself…

FLASH GHOST by thisbmikev

Set your LC-A on a tripod and block its light sensor with some opaque tape and you’ll also need a cable release and a flash to do this trick. Now have your shutter released with the cable and lock it (to hold the shutter open) and step in front of the camera. After a few seconds fire your flash onto yourself and step away. Wait 2 more seconds and close the shutter. Looks like a double exposure but its not!

May it be a 12-inch or 10-meter long cable release that you’re using with any of your analogue cameras, taking night shots is a breeze and your self portraits will be more honest than ever. Just don’t forget to have a tripod with you.
