If you are a photographer chances are that you like to take photos of your family, friends and significant others. But not everyone likes to have their photos taken. In fact, there are quite a lot of people who specifically don’t like their photo to be taken, and will find creative ways to avoid being photographed. Anyone who has a photo of a hand between the face of the ‘model’ and the camera knows what I am talking about.
Photographer Mikaël Theimer has a girlfriend who does not enjoy being photographed, and she took the avoidance act to a new heights.
While some will see this as a sign to stop shooting, Mikaël created a series of photos showing how hard it can be to take a photo of those who want to avoid it and are alert enough.
Mikaël shares that:
I love my girlfriend, and I’m a photographer, so I love to take pictures of my girlfriend, right? Problem is, she hates it when I do: whenever I raise my camera and point it to her, she finds a way to hide her face
Do you experience similar issues with your significant other?
