Sometimes you have to be willing to get uncomfortable to get the shot you want. Find that angle, no matter how uncomfortable. Sort through lighting and shadow issues to freeze that perfect moment. Sometimes you only have once chance. You prepare as best you can and hope you don’t miss the opportunity as the race ends, the plane arrives, or the couple kisses.
And sometimes you can lay around for two hours naked on a quilt you made yourself. Repeatedly asking Sir to go back and try, ‘one more time’, until you are sure you got the image you want. Either way being comfortable and calm while you take your time and capture exactly what you intend.
This is from two weekends ago when I was trying to get the shot of Sir’s feet that I used for my Sinful Sunday post. I don’t have the most advanced camera, so our shots take a lot of trial and error. I have quite a few blurry pictures on my computer of Sir’s feet that need deleted. In fact, we shot for so long that the batteries died. I had to plug the adapter in as we couldn’t find replacements.
I’m hoping to be in a similar position tonight or tomorrow get a photo for this week’s prompt: Shoot From Below. Not sure what we’ll end up with yet, but I’m sure inspiration will strike.
