“What is that thing on your face, Daddy!?!” is what I hear my son, Lucas, thinking every time he comes at the camera I’m shooting him with.
It’s got buttons, lights and it makes curious noises from time to time. And I put it up to my face. How could I blame him for not wanting to grab it and spend the rest of the day poking it, banging it and trying to jam things inside it.
Most series of shots I take of Lucas end with photos like these. It was the same with Max and Cody. Needless to say I’m a pro at taking pictures without drawing attention now. I disguise the camera or what I’m doing with it, like some nature photographer with hay in his hat to blend in.
However! I have to admit my iPhoto library has a lot of “no look” shots taken my hip or my chest while I’m in motion. These tend to feature such amazing things as an ear, a blurry leg or a section of lawn or sky. I consider those my art shots.
