Here’s a blog of guy in Amsterdam who sets up his camera and runs away. “The rules are simple: I put the self-timer on 2 seconds, push the button and try to get as far from the camera as I can.”
At first it seemed a little silly and a little monotonous, but as I scrolled through the photos, it gave me a view into the Dutch world in which this guy lives. And many of the pictures are really good. In the end, his simple premise has allowed him to compose and shoot low angle shots with an unattended camera. He happens to be running away in every picture.
