anyways any tricks on judging distance or you just sort of train to get "good an eye for it"

Mark off a 14 and 20 foot path and then naturally walk the distance ten or more times to get the average number of paces you take to cover the length. Just try to walk your normal stride and make sure you do it enough times so you are bored with it and are walking naturally. Test yourself a few times to make sure you can pace out the distances. When you want to set up the shot, have your wife stand at the subject spot, then walk your tripod and camera the correct number of paces away to set up the gear. Walk back, stand next to wife, smile, press remote shutter button.

Thank you
