How to Lure a Photographer
Any kind will do.
Or drinks, but food might even be better.
In this case I was lucky enough to stumble into some great people while working on a project, people who were in the middle of making a huge pot of stew over an open flame.
It was grand. I was like a moth to the flame. Aimless, adrift.
“Hey, give me your camera and I’ll shoot you,” said the person handing me the food. “I’ll bet you never have images of yourself.” True.
Handing someone a Leica is never easy. They stare at the back, looking for the image, then look through and realize the focusing ring does nothing. So, I prefocus and live with the result.
Not bad. My meter is in focus, so my guess wasn’t bad.
