Ben Kaufmann Selfies

27 Oct Ben Kaufmann Selfies


I spotted this collection of Ben Kaufmann selfies online. No, not the horribly narcissistic self-portraits people take to upload to their social media platforms. Ben rigged a wireless radio transmitter normally used for flashes to his shutter to take self shot riding photos. You can find more photos on the Norco website and a better explanation below:

“I Attached the wireless flash transmitter to my helmet and with the use of a sky dive inspired bite switch. On the other end was a wireless flash receiver hooked into my camera to make an instant shutter release. I was able to tripod and capture my own photos with my teeth by biting down to capture the photos. It’s definitely challenging as I have to think about the trick and the photo timing at the same time. Pretty fun”
