Maybe it’s a touch of voyeurism and maybe I’m just a people watcher who likes to observe how people go about taking pictures of each other. Either way, it offers up a great photo opportunity. Be honest, haven’t you stopped and watched people as they photograph their friends or family? It’s one of my favorite things to do, and I usually end up asking if they want me to take the picture so all the family can be in the photo…which I also love to do.
There’s something endearing about the way people take pictures of others. The way they try to direct, their body language as they compose, especially if the ones being photographed are giving them a hard time. It makes for great subject matter when families take pictures after someone has done something important, even if it’s just important to them. For example winning a trophy is a good one. Or families traveling together.
I’ve been lucky enough to catch that happening on several occasions.
As I tell my online students with the PPSOP, and in my “Stretching Your Frame of Mind” workshops I conduct around the planet you have to be an obsever of your surroundings. Pay attention all the time to what’s happening and you just might get lucky.
