Tip of the Day: Remote Remotely

Want to use your remote shutter release from just about any angle instead of just directly in front of your camera? Use a makeup mirror as a reflector.

The working distance of the reflected beam depends mostly on your camera. — Reader Tip From Donald Krone, Sawyer, MI
