Five Minute Photo Shoot

Five minutes.

That's what he gave me today.

He sat at the dining room table and let me shoot for just five minutes. It's hard to get him to keep still. He's constantly moving, laughing, chasing the dog, looking for food, and anything else that comes to mind. So he doesn't usually model for me.

You can tell by the photo on the left, above.

I think I'll call it "Tolerant Patience".

And the one on the right?

I think he looks like Dick Van Dyke.
It's a challenge to get a good picture of him. He can be such a funny guy and loves to goof around.

Especially when my camera comes out.

Portrait, schmortrait.

Let's practice shooting with high speed and fast lenses.
It's his personality that comes out during these moments.

And in case you can't tell, J is a whole lotta fun.
When he's not irritated with me.
