Top Pet Peeve while photographing
3

Everyone's got one, what's yours?

Mine is when I ask people (namely family members) to get together and pose for a quick few snaps from me that other people pull out their phones and start crowding me and the next thing I know, EVERY person in the photo is looking in different directions! Drives me all kinds of insane, I tell you!

I try to stick to candid shots or a quick pose from individuals, but group photos are inevitable, especially around holidays.

At least I can get my own family to look at my camera when it's on a timer on a tripod! Now, getting toddlers to remain in place, look ahead, and smile for 10 seconds...well, shoot, that's a minor miracle right there (I actually pulled it off once!).
