hi everyone, I have a question for you. If you have one last chance to take photograph, what do you want to take? I am very curious about your answers:)

Do you mean that it's my last photograph before I die, or just that, somehow, I'm going to take one last photograph and then continue living but never do photography again?

If it's the first, that it's one last photo before I go: Nothing. I'd set the camera down, and enjoy all the time I could with my two adult sons, my sister and mother and brothers and friends. I'd have no need to document anything else, because I wouldn't be going back and "reliving" the moment by looking at the photo, since I'd be dead.

If it's the second option--I'd either take one last picture of my family members, or possibly a picture of several dear friends I have that I don't actually HAVE any pictures of.

A couple of years ago, I gave my sister a book for Christmas. Can't remember the name of it, or the photographer, but it was an intriguing premise: For one year, he'd allowed himself only ONE shot a day. The book was a compilation of some of those daily shots, plus writings from the photographer about his experience, limiting himself to just "THE shot" each day. I think he'd retired from some type of professional photography, and I want to say it may have been with National Geographic--anyway, he was used to taking 100s of photos at a time, so that was quite an endeavor to undertake.

While there is no way I'd even WANT to limit myself to one photo a day for an entire year, I often think it'd be a really interesting experiment to do for maybe a month.

Tough question.
I do non technical street photography so I suppose it'd be something special from that line.
If I was feeling soppy, it'll be a photo of my wife.
That way, the photo could be buried with me so I'd always have a picture of her.

I'd love to shoot Karolina Kurkova with a PhaseOne 645DF+ + PhaseOne 80mm AF2.8 before I died.

That would be a great way to go.

If someone tells me I'm going to die after the next photograph I take, making it my last, then I'm going to have to think about that shot for another fifty years or so. I'll let you know then.
