They always look horrible. The wife has very thin eyes naturally when she smiles, so it looks like they are closed, my daughter likes to bug out her eyes to be funny... and then today we were on a limited time schedule so I really didn't have a chance to review the images... and needless to say... Ughhh...
And then I was asked to have my two and their two cousin do a group photo... I don't see that ending well since the baby may elect to cry... the other will bug out her eyes, the one cousin is completely unruly and if she lived in my house and acted the way she did, she would be disciplined everyday, and the other is physically and mentally handicapped.
So god help me.
This is where I take out my 70-200 or future 300/400 f2.8 IS II. Stay far away from them and let them play as kid - you'll more decent photos instead asking them to pose for shots.
I do agree, but if I serve up a fine creme brulee, I will inevitably hear that they ordered tira misu.
oh and today I had the baby set up for some photos of her feet with an umbrella and of camera flash and she refuses to cooperate.. she's just kicking away like she is trying to tread water. I'm thinking I should just become s landscape photographer because landscapes don't blink or move.
