The ubiquitous self timer -- everyone has one, most forget to use it. In this episode I cover some of my favorite uses for the self timer, as well as remote releases. This simple function setting on your camera can help you get razor sharp images, even in less than perfect lighting.

Monthly Photo Assignment
Last month's assignment, Before & After, was so compelling I spent some time during the show discussing its results. I think there is much to be learned from the work that our club members shared.
I also discuss this month's photo assignment, Pattern. Keep your eyes peeled for the patterns that are all around us. You can read more about how to submit on our Submissions page. Deadline for entry is July 31.
