The other side of the Lens

So Sunday saw me at the studio to shoot a session with a young musician and an interesting brief from my web designer …”we need some pictures of you working” .

OK I thought that should be easy and I tasked my “assistant” aka husband to take said photos.

Now its an odd situation, being photographed whilst photographing and surprisingly I started to feel quite awkward. I just couldn’t put my finger on why and then it struck me!!! I was feeling awkward because I was worried about how I would look, was my hair ok, did I have a double chin, does my bum look big, etc etc. I was fearing the very thing I work so hard to avoid in my sessions.
