If you don't have a copy of your manual, you'll want to download a copy.  You can get it from this page:  http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/eos_slr_camera_systems/eos_digital_slr_cameras/digita...

 

The instructions are on page 49 -- but really you should ready through the manual.  You'll learn a lot of capabilites of the camera that are worth knowing that you'd likely miss if you don't read it.

 

There is a button on the back of your camera near the right edge of the LCD screen and it has an icon of a clock.  If you press that button, you can use the left/right arrows to enable the self-timer.

 

It's a 10-second self-timer but it also puts the camera in a mode which allows it to be triggered via Canon's IR remote.  

 

the current remote (which still works with your camera) is the Canon RC-6... it's not expensive -- just one button and it triggers the camera via IR.
