(of course I mean with a camera)
A photography forum that I visit (too)frequently recently posted a link to this blog entry by a photographer who just lost his step-dad to ALS.
In the entry, he talks about his experience in working at Kinko's and "fixing" photos for people's funeral, and some of the sadness that was brought by the lack of photos the deceased friends and family actually had to remember them by.
He spoke of how glad he was he got to photograph his step-dad and really capture who he was. Not just some snapshots taken during Christmas or birthdays.
This writing got me thinking about my photos and those I love and who are closest to me. You people know who you are, but did you know that you're the hardest for me to shoot? I'm not quite sure why that is, but i want it to change.
So that's my challenge to myself, to accurately capture those who are most important in my life. Your challenge, if you're a photographer, do the same thing, turn your camera on those you love, if you're a member of my family or close friend, shut up and let me take your picture. :-)
