2. Share your stories with your family. A few weeks ago, I told my 7-year-old son about a story I’m writing for kids. I mentioned that I’d been working on this story for months. “How come you never told me before?” he wanted to know. He was genuinely shocked—maybe even a little hurt—that I’d kept the plot points to myself. “I guess I didn’t think you’d be interested,” I told him truthfully. He is obsessed with soccer and ice hockey, and mine is a story of girls, time travel, and shyness. But it bothered him that I had a story I’d chosen not to mention. From now on, I’ll err on the side of sharing the things I dream up even if they have nothing to do with soccer balls and hockey pucks.
@shar your critique of the first image makes me smile a bit actually. "Rapport" this is my sister in laws family, I'm the aunt of the groom of this wedding. I'd just met most of these people for the first time this weekend but they are still relatives. We also did this photo in about 2 minutes as the dinner bell had rung and it was an after thought. So posing - there wasn't any really - it was a matter of "quick everyone get in there". Not sure what you mean about composition, crooked and camera angle. You want a higher or lower angle here? How would you crop it? Just outside the frame it's bright sun, that's why it's so tight. Also this is a clothing example not an example of the best lighting or posing. I mentioned I had a hard time finding "bad" examples.
