Personality Thursday  – Reader, Thinker, Observer
It is very hard for photographer‘s to be on the other side of the lens. We get jittery and want to control the outcome and all that instead of enjoying it, Diana Ngila wasn’t any different. But I have to say kudos for pulling it off and giving us great shots despite the fact that I told her she was going to be the model a few minutes before taking these. She took the info well, if you consider breaking out in a sweat and bringing on the puppy eyes to get out of it, taking it well. We had more than 5 photographers in the house so it was pretty intense. Now she must know what models go through.
Diana is one of my recent friends. I met her at a concert recently(though I think we’d been tweeting before then). I really think she is an observer, a reason I am not surprised she is a photographer with journalistic tendencies. Also a reader and a person who processes stuff(in fact our shoot was centered around a book). All in all, she is someone I am glad I met. And it was her birthday a week ago, or so…(Feb people rock!) so Happy Birthday ma’am.
I shot these using Diana’s Canon 7D…cool camera that one.
Then these I did with my trusty Nikon D40, Didi
That last shot was for they that said I never shoot people while they laugh or smile, clearly I am trying this year, yes? Seriously I even got to get a hearty laugh from Anto last week.
This last shot is from David Mutua, a fellow brother of the lens…a kind of behind the scenes thing going on there.
