Sound Shooters: Tethered Shooting

Monday, October 19, 2015

Text and photos by Joel Dames

When you connect your camera to your laptop, this is called shooting tethered. Shooting tethered allows you to instantly get the images you take into your laptop. The reason why you might do this is so that others can view the images instantly after they are taken. You can view the images even larger if you connect your laptop to a large TV screen.

Set up a background and and you’ve got a photobooth. This is our second year at City of Shoreline’s annual Monster Mash Dash 5K. When runners come in and register, they get a free portrait taken. Since they view the image instantly, they might opt for a retake, which is fast as another camera click.


Soon after the race —walk, jog, or run — judges decide the winners in several different categories and awards follow within a short time. Included in this article are a few of the images from this year’s event. 

You can view all of the images from this year and last year at our Facebook page.

If you missed this year’s Monster Mash Dash, put it on your calendar for next year. It is such a fun family and community event.

Like the content but not the title...could your contributions be called something other than "Shooters," please?
