Wearables Competition


These days, a watch is so much more than a device for telling the time. It can monitor your heart rate, display your text messages, and it can even trigger your camera. Yes, you heard right: with Triggertrap's Wearables mode you can trigger your camera from right there on your wrist. And, in honour of wearable tech we are holding a Wearables competition giving you guys the chance to win!

Tell me more!

We are running a Wearables competition for the next two weeks, starting today (17th August 2015) and finishing on 31st August 2015. At the end of the fortnight, three lucky winners will get the chance to win all the Triggertrap gear they need to shoot with their Apple Watch or Pebble smartwatch.

We want to hear your most creative set up ideas. Don't forget you can use Wearables on either Triggertrap Mobile or Triggertrap Timelapse Pro on an iOS device with Apple Watch, and Android users can use Pebble devices to trigger their cameras. The lucky winners won't just win all the Triggertrap gear they need to capture their shot, but once you've gone out and taken your shot we'd love to feature it over on our blog! 

Here's some ideas to get you in the mood:

You could use Triggertrap and Wearables to create a photo booth with a twist. Give the participants a smartwatch and suddenly they have full control over when the photo is taken. Or if you are feeling particularly cheeky, keep the smartwatch and take control yourself.

Triggertrap Wearables mode is great for light painting and wire wool spinning, just like Calvin Munhnweyi's shot below. You can get yourself into position and trigger the camera from your wrist when you are ready - no need for self-timer!

Long exposures are a breeze with Wearables. You can leave your phone safely set up on your camera with your Phonetrap, settle down and trigger the shot from your smartwatch. James Poston's awesome photo below is a great example of the effects that long exposure can bring to a landscape photo.
