THE HUSBAND GALLERY – PHOTO A WEEK CHALLENGE

The only person I seem to be able to get to sit still for me is — you guessed it — my husband. So I have a lot of portraits of Garry. Most of them profiles or half profiles. Pictures of Garry at events, Garry taking pictures. Garry being Garry.

What makes him easy to photograph is he spent his entire professional life in front of a camera, so he knows “good side” from “bad side,” knows not to look directly at the camera. Knows what I mean when I ask him to show a “little more attitude.”

Nice to have a subject to photograph who actually understands what goes into making a good picture.Β And appreciates the results.

  3. Very cool photos πŸ™‚
    If someone tells me to “smile” for a photo I’ll put on a big fake smile, and “show a little more attitude” would probably result in a “crossed arm rapper pose” of some description. Taking pictures of me is not easy.

    • Taking pictures of most people is difficult. MOST people are camera shy. Garry is just so used to being in front of a camera, he doesn’t even think about it. And better yet, he is used to taking direction. He’s not bad at giving it, either.
