N isn’t always keen on having his photo taken but the other day he wanted to go outside after school with the tripod so he could have a photo shoot with lots of photos of the 2 of us taken with the timer.
We took ages setting up the tripod, working out how far back we could stand…none of it easy with the wet soggy grass. I’d taken out a couple of our umbrellas so we could have some fun shots (interesting to get everything in frame relying on the timer and our correct placement.
After all the faffing, I couldn’t work out how to get the timer up on my camera. Sigh.
Then N went wandering off, put off by the wait. Double sigh.
So I gave up, pointed him towards the umbrellas and snapped away as he twirled and posed. Considering N usually moans about me taking photos, he didn’t do too badly. But it’s definitely a ‘get your camera ready because he’ll only work with it for around 5 minutes’ situation.
So if you want some fun photos, get out some brightly coloured umbrellas, and work during golden hour.
