2016-10-21: Using Remote Shutter Releases

Some areas of Photography need specialised equipment to achieve results.

For example

  • High speed photography from bursting balloons to water drops
  • Slow photography from making “Ghosts” to photographing star trails
  • Catching a match as it ignites (See picture below)

A key part involves using shutter releases

These have developed recently to include faster and more precise control

Join our media school senior instructor Alwyn Hanson as he shows some of the range of shutter releases available today


  • Using Smart Phones as a shutter release
  • Sound and Light activated units
  • Laser and light beam activated units
  • Interval timing and bulb remote controls
