I'll be travelling solo to Paris for business in December. I often use a tripod to take some artsy shots whilst I am travelling, but always with myself stood next to it taking photos of others. This time I was thinking about the possibility of taking some shots with myself in front of the camera using a timer/remote. (Example of the types of photo I will be going for)
I was wondering if anyone has any tips to ensure the safety of the camera and equipment whilst doing such shots? I will be attempting to take as many as possible during sun rise to minimise the amount of tourists around, but have always been worried about theft etc. especially in Paris.
