My journey with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 and my efforts to become a creative photographer for my own pleasure.

portrait with tripod
This is so hard, set timer, run quickly to where you think you should be, and then, oh, don't look at camera, should I smile, feel so stupid smiling at nothing, oh, ok will imagine something silly. Ok, these are the three I thought where better than the others. First one I always loved a photo of Mum when she was about 16 standing in the garden, holding her hands, and this is my interpretation of that. Second, well not looking at camera!!! and third one silly smile. Did I learn anything from this exercise, yes, its not easy to appear relaxed, maybe you need someone else there to talk to or to make you laugh.
