    Well, here come some shots I took when I got bored of taking pictures of horses and Jockeys ;) So this might tell us how we are seen by the people around us. We spend so much attention on the world around us, so I thought it is time to look at ourselves ;)

    1: concentration
    Link gone :(

    2: he is certainly happy he is getting a good shot
    Link gone :(

    3: behind the camera you hardly ever realise how bulky it really is
    Link gone :(

    4: Little girl with big lenses
    Link gone :(

    5: crossing the track
    Link gone :(

    6: Nikon makes you happy ;)
    Link gone :(

    7: Take a break
    Link gone :(

    8: Stressed
    Link gone :(




    ... time for reflection, aye? :p

    Fascinating pictures - interesting to see the people and equipment 'behind the picture', and seeing their reactions and emotions whilst shooting. A shot I would have liked to have gotten whilst on holiday was something similar - all the other tourists on a boat trip we were on all pointing their cameras and camcorders at an attraction.

    These kind of pictures do interest me - and would like to have a go at those kinds of pictures when the opportunity arises!

    Yep, that kind of thing! :mrgreen:

    I think I'd like to get more into photographing people, their expressions, and just carrying on with their lives. Sorry, bit off topic here!

    If you read the instructions that come with a Sto-fen you will see that it recommends you always have the flash in the bounce position, it gives a better result.

    In LA, outside of the fancy restaurants (where I get to spend most of my evenings) there's always a few paparazzi hanging around. A few weeks ago my wife and I had a quick dinner at Dan Tana's when the Hiltons walked in (together with Tommy Hilfiger), followed a few minutes later by Hugh Hefner with 9 (NINE!) playmates, followed a few minutes later by three of the Lakers. When we got outside there was 30 guys (with fat lenses) pointing at us just firing away like nervous grunts in their first combat engagement. My wife is quite cute, so they kept firing away, but once I got into the shot there was a discernable groan of disappointment that went through the crowd.

    Of course, I did NOT have a camera with me.... bummer.

    This was great. I love all the emotion that was shared. Too cool of an idea :D

    very interesting! Love the idea of the people behind the photos, you went with it and it worked.
    Great Job!
