Today’s Shutter Sister’s post is about having patience for the unexpected but great shot. I can really relate to this post, for while I am forever getting people to “say cheese,” at least two members of my family defy conventional photography this way. Emily, who used to be a camera ham, now usually turns away or puts up her hand when the camera eye turns toward her. John just gets perpetually goofy and contorted faces in pictures – even when he’s trying to look natural!
This was a nice candid shot taken unawares. The early evening, clouded light was interesting, but best of all, he didn’t see me scneak around the corner with the camera. None of the shots after this one turned out as good.
