    Is there anyway the Apple Remote from my Macbook can be used to take a photo? With the remote so I don't have to be near the computer?

    I wanna take some candid shots of my family and I in the living room while the Mac is in the front of the room.

    If so how? Anyway at all, perhaps using Photo Booth or something?

    And while on the matter, anyway to not make the green light go on? That'll be a dead giveaway only allowing me to sneak in 2 candid shots at most until my dad most likely be the one to notice it since he knows his macs while the rest dont;

    I think there is shareware to let you assign other commands to your remote--like Command-T, which takes a pic in PhotoBooth. Search on Or just get a cheap wireless mouse (or VNC from an iPhone or Touch). However, PhotoBooth always has a pretty blatant countdown and flash.

    Maybe you could just start your Mac recording video (iMovie can do it) and then later on grab some nice frames.
