I'm Never In Pictures Taken...
Oct 11, 2007

This post is a gripe and a quest for a solution to a problem. The problem is, I'm never in my pictures. I take my camera with me just about everywhere and I'm the one that is always taking the picture rather than being in one. When I do attempt to get in a picture by letting someone else take the picture with my camera, they always turn out messed up (out of focus, improperly exposed, etc.)

So, how do you combat the problem? I have the Rebel XTi/400D. What setting do you recommend I place the camera in before I hand the camera over to the person, that keeps looking at the LCD Display on the back of the camera instead of the viewfinder,that will be taking the picture that I will be in?

Do you just flip it to P mode and hope and pray that they capture an image you will be happy with? Or maybe even the Auto Mode (square)?

Just curious. I'm tired of not being able to see myself in my pictures. Yes, I could use a self-timer but that is not always convenient for the moment.

OK, enough griping.
