By default, the Nikon D3300’s Live View will turn itself off after 10 minutes. You can bump that up to a maximum of 30 minutes. This come in handy when you need to keep the Live View active for longer stretches, such as when you’re connecting your D3300 to a computer to use as a webcam.

You can find this setting under:

Settings > Auto Off Timers > Custom > Live View > 30m

I'm a professional photographer based in Washington, DC. Seven continents, up mountains, underwater, and many places in between. I've been shooting for 30+ years, and my photos and time-lapse videos have appeared in a bunch of different publications, from major newspapers to magazines and books, billboards, TV shows, professional sports stadiums, museums, and even massive architectural scrims covering world-famous buildings while they're being renovated. You can see some of my travel photography here and here.
