Sadly, the skill is not mine. I wish it were. I've tried. I can take not-awful pictures. I'm a perfectly serviceable photographer for, say, capturing the highlights of an annual meeting/awards dinner. But I lack the eye to know exactly how to craft a beautiful shot, or to recognize the perfect moment and capture it. (I also lack the $3000 super mega camera, but that's only part of the problem!)
Open thread! Any budding photographers among us? What's the best photo you've ever seen? What's the best photo you've ever seen of you? What's the most cringe-worthy? Are there people in your family/friends who always get handed the camera, and are there people who can always be counted on to put their thumbs over the lens? Do you love getting your picture taken, or do you hate it? When you do get your picture taken, do you smile or scowl?
Monday Reminder! While I have fun coming up with pretty pictures and/or interesting “prompt” questions for open threads, you aren’t limited to those! These threads are open - go wild, talk about whatever moves you! (Just remember that this is still a safe space, please!)
And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
