Lights, camera, action! Catching the photographer in action.

During my evening with the Strobist amateur photographers, the group were experimenting with professional lighting and brollies.
I wanted to play a different part, me being a novice and liking to do my own thing. I stood around observing the photographers in action, listening to the groups' individual banter and comments and then what advice Lee was offering them in how to deal with certain situations and shots.

I love to see the glossy magazines that portray models with the latest fashions, and find it fastinating to know what was involved within the process of creating that particular shot. Its always interesting to see who and what was behind the camera lens and what was involved in the making of it.

I must admit I am a self confessed 'people watcher'. My husband just thinks I'm nosey! Well maybe I am, but I just love watching and listening to other people's conversations and how they interact with each other.
How people's persona can change when with a different crowd or even what one other character can bring to a situation and how it changes the dynamics of the group. Real life drama, that's what I like.....
