Re: Action self portrait with the A57

I set the timer to wait about 8 seconds then use bulb for about 5-6 seconds (I mixed this up between a few runs), having the camera pre focused and on the 12 FPS setting it just went straight to burst mode after the delay (which gave me time to run to the corner and turn around)

In all between all my fiddling I took about 300-350 photos with probably about 10 or so passes by the camera, there were a few other good photos from the lot but this was my favourite.

I was rather aware after a bit of dabbling how I had to run to kick up the dust for the effect which I thought would work quite well.

The lens is my favourite at the moment, the 35mm 1.8.
