The other night we were at the beach playing around after dinner and my husband got hold of my camera. Now, he is not a photographer by any means. He’s the guy who when we were first dating found a roll of film in a drawer, got it developed, and found photos from two separate trips to Europe plus a Christmas gathering…all in 24 frames.
So I chose the settings for him, showed him how to move the focus point around, and asked him to get some pictures of me with our son. I usually keep it set on the continuous high-speed shooting mode, which keeps firing the shutter (at 6 frames per second) until you release the button. This is great for action shots like the ones below.
After he’d fired off a bunch of shots, I asked him if he felt like a photographer now. He answered, “If I had any idea what I was doing, I might.” He might not have known what he was doing, but he still captured some great shots of the two of us.
And here’s one that I took. Love how he’s carrying his Crocs in this one. (He doesn’t like to wear shoes in the sand–can you blame him??)
