From 2015, your Brother here with a Pentax 6×7 and my eldest Zoe with her CVS camera…we start ’em young in this family! 😊😘
My elder daughter today enjoys shooting with her iPhone but for some reason both my girls have grown to hate me taking their photos. Actually “hate” might be too strong of a word.
What they really don’t like is if I take too long playing around with the camera settings or focusing etc, which is to be expected when shooting with older manual focus gear, ie, rangefinders, TLRs, medium format, large format etc.
And when they complain my response is usually something like…you gotta have patience!!
And if I want to make a stronger point, I might say…you’re a photographer’s kid and you can’t sit still for a photo?! 😀
How about you folks with kids or even significant others like wives, girlfriends, boyfriends? Are they into photography? Are they willing to sit or stand still as you test your new gear on them? I’d love to know how you deal with it!
My philosophy has always been, if I can get a good shot of the kids using whatever gear I’m using, I can get a good shot of anything!
Happy Friday and have a great weekend folks! 😎🙏🏻👍🏻
