Friday's Photolife--Taking the taker

One of the things I love doing is taking pictures of people taking pictures. Maybe it's because 99% of the time I'm behind the camera. There are fun things going on with the photographer and her/his assistants. I love my niece's face here.
It's especially fun when they're going at it with multiple cameras.
or viewing what they've taken
or in crazy positions to get just the right shot
or in the end smiling for a camera. (My niece swiped my camera and took a picture of me. It's one of the very few recent ones I have.)

I have done this. I have a great pic of my son looking right at me with a camera over his eye. It's cool.

And, great pic of you! perfect for, oh I don't know...maybe a future jacket flap??? :D

Angie said...

Cute pictures. Especially the one of you.

People are usually very focused when they are in the process of taking a picture. It never occurred to me how cool that would look : )

And the pic of you is lovely : )

Thanks, y'all. And, Tess, it would be nice if I ever got that picture on a book cover. If only...

Nisa said...

That is so neat. I'd never thought of it like that before. Lovely picture of you too.

Barrie said...

What a pretty smile you have!

I love your picture! What a beautiful woman you are. My husband is the photographer in the family. Sort of self appointed ;)

Rena said...

Great post. I love doing this too, but sometimes feel odd if I'm taking one of someone I don't know. I try to do it fast.

Hehehe! That's really funny that you put that picture of me up there! I don't even remember getting on the ground like that, but I do have the picture that I took from that shot. It turned out great! Can I get that photo of me from you? I think it's hilarious. :)

Remember...I've got a picture of you in a weird position taking a shot of that light post. :)

lotusgirl said...

Gee, thanks! *primp, primp*

Glam, I'm glad you like the shot. Hey, send me the one of me and the lamp post. That's sure to be quite a sight. Me, in all my chubby loveliness hanging on a pole. Are we sure it's not obscene? Oh, that's right it was it was arctic minus 10.

Pictures of people taking pictures is special. It's almost like you're spying on them, and it's awesome!

Rebecca Ramsey said...

What a great photo of you!
I love photos of people taking photos, mostly because they're always smiling! And nobody has even said cheese!

Yay, it's fun to see what you really look like. I love it. I've always just imagined you as a flower. :)
