Pictures of People Taking Pictures

Taking pictures is fun.  Taking pictures of others taking pictures can be even more fun.  

Not much is better than enjoying your favorite pastime with someone you care about.  Luckily for me, I have a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my photo-habit.  So much so, that when we upgraded my camera…he picked up the old one (which happened to be my very first digital SLR – the one he bought me) and started to plan trips where we could take pictures together. 
In case your wondering, this man right here is who I'm talking about. 

The first and only trip so far has been to Longwood Gardens.  But I do see more trips in our future. 
Anyway, even with all those beautiful flowers everywhere,  my favorite subject ended up being him.  Ah well…guess it can’t be helped, he is my beloved after all.  

In Focus

Lesson 1: If you let people get engrossed in what they are doing, they are much less likely to notice the camera, and more likely to show their natural selves.
Lesson 2: Careful not to frame the picture in such a way that wrists and ankles are cropped off…it looks weird.
Lesson 3: The subject you plan on taking pictures of (in this case the flowers), may not be the only subject out there…keep an eye out for other potential subjects and you might be pleasantly surprised.
