I am actually a very camera shy person (all the way back since I became a teenager). And its only these recent few years that I started teaching photography at SLCC that I actually allowed my students to take photos of me. Slowly (and painfully) this camera shyness erodes away....
My father is an avid photographer and he took many many photos of me and my sister when I was a baby and child. I have sorted most of my old photos and its a bit sad when I had difficulty finding a photo of him with me. The reason, of course you should have guessed it. He was the person behind the camera.
I went through the hundreds (maybe thousands?) of photos I took of my family and sad to say, those photos with me in it are just sucky... hehehe.. mainly because the person behind the camera sucks... or maybe the main reason is I look sucky :P
But I do want to have more photos of me with the kids, for record purpose and so I did. Took some 3000B today. Just 2 shots left in the back so I set the camera on tripod and focus the camera beforehand. Posed with the kids while my wife triggered the shutter.
So for record purpose.. here are the photos.. :) Taken on the night of 6 Aug 2011 @ 930PM.
Both photos taken with the new 100mm 2.8. Yup the lens vignettes on the Instant 100 film but I just loved it!
