Remember photo day at school? It felt a little like that at my house tonight.
I needed a photo of myself for a work-related thing and didn't like any of the ones I have. We take plenty of pics but don't have very many nice photos of either of us. note to self: take sunglasses OFF when I'm getting my picture taken.
So K set up a photo set, complete with a chair and background. He is much more patient than any photographer ever was (he does have the luxury of not having hundreds of people to photograph). And with digital I can look at the pic immediately rather than have to wait to get it back several weeks later. This came in really handy so I could say, no I don't like that smile or adjust this that way.
As photographed as kids are today, with digital cameras, video cameras, etc. I don't know if picture day has the same excitement (and nervousness about if it turned out ok). For a long time those were the main pictures I had of myself, but now you see every little thing a person does on facebook, twitter, blogs and the like.
Edit - Here is the photo, didn't K do a great job? The book background was his idea
