one woman working

one woman, originally uploaded by seamonkeylifeboat.

i swear i swear i swear these guys laugh and hint and flirt to get me to take their pictures, waggling their heads and making oddly signifigant seeming eye contact and making little motions at my camera and their faces - then i take the picture and all smiles are off. i always thought people looked stiff and unhappy in old photos because they had to pose so long but im starting to think that its just a reaction by people who dont see cameras often - or they saw the old photos, too, and think that they're supposed to make that face. as soon as i lower the camera they jump up and down and giggle and call their friends over to see the little digital image. maybe i should have andy off to the side take pictures of the process so that we can capture the elusive indian smile.

Since pixels are free you should try to shoot from the hip and hope you can get the elusive indian smile. Does you camera make noise? Can you turn the noise off? The pictures are awesome by the way. I want to bring all those puppies home.
