People are this particular photographers nightmare!
They don’t do what you tell them….they blink…they expect to get paid….they wear colours that clash indescribably….they push to get to the front/back depending on temperament…..they have spots, bad teeth, misaligned eyes and halitosis, ( the latter might seem irrelevant but they’re the ones who always want a close-up)…SO NO! Wherever possible I DON’T DO PEOPLE!
Today therefore, was a problem…The glamourous but demanding Mrs SHPics, after thoroughly enjoying her breakfast in bed, instructed me which items to wash by hand, which to put in the dish-washer, then parcelled me off to town with an extensive shopping list, leaving no time at all for the photo-trip I had planned…Consequently I did what I promised myself I would only ever do in the Far East, and took some shots at the market….the very busy market! People everywhere…AAaaaargh!
It was a dark, wet and dismal day, but under the tarpaulins the colour was waiting to grab you and give you a good shake, so I set the iso high, hand held with the shutter hovering around the 1/60th of a second mark as I wasn’t too bothered about being tack-sharp, and took around thirty shots in a one minute manouevre before running back to the car and hiding..Most were just too soft but I thought these three worked OK.
