Running From Camera puts the 2-second self-timer to good use

Anyone else using their cameras self-timer for interesting projects? Leave your suggestions in the comments.

It can be tough to find inspiration during the brutal winter months, but seeing simple, well executed ideas like Running From Camera is very encouraging. The artist's blurb does an excellent job summing up the simple concept: "The rules are simple: I put the self-timer on 2 seconds, push the button and try to get as far from the camera as I can."

I was actually a little surprised at how interesting it was to click through the whole gallery. There is definitely an evolution in his composition from the start of the project to now. And while the whole thing is still most certainly a novelty, it's an interesting starting point. It might also make a great new Olympis sport.
