Photograph Your Friends From Five States Away!

Relationships, fragile packages, our feet. Long distance is hard on all of ‘em.

Life would be grander if we could just teleport. Well now we can, in a way!

Boltron (aka Nate Bolt), in collaboration with Paul Octavius, Steph Goralnick, and Laura Miner, created The Shutter Exchange.

It’s a simple yet ingenious method of photographing your friends from states away (and even further!). It gives you control of their camera via the internet!

Quickie tutorial:
1) Connect DSLR to computer via USB cable
2) Use Remote DSLR Pro software to view what your camera sees on your computer screen
3) Give control of your screen to your friends by using Skype or Adobe Connect’s screen-sharing features
4) With the combination of Remote DSLR Pro and screen-sharing, your friends can adjust your camera’s settings and release your camera’s shutter from afar!

Yes. Much easier than breaking our body into a million pieces and putting them back together again.
