    Trying to shoot decent pictures with partners or children in tow is very frustrating, I wonder what the ceiling of The Sistine Chapel would have looked like if Michaelangelo would have had to have his wife and kids along, happily these days my children are grown up, and my wife is happy to let me go and do my own thing

    How to get your partner out on a shoot

    I told my GF we were going to the Grand Canyon for an awesome hike and camping trip... My pack was a LITTLE bit heavier than hers because of all the film/lenses/tripod/filters hehe

    Several reasons:

    1) You can tell them that it is THEIR art. They saw it first. They have first crack at it.
    If we were out hunting and you were taking aim at a big deer, would it be right if I shot it out from under you and dragged it off?

    2) It might be instructive to hand somebody a camera and let them (try to) use it. They might learn that this game ain't so easy as it seems.

    3) Who knows? Maybe they'll get the bug?

    4) Even if the picture doesn't turn out great, maybe they could use it as a reference for when they decide to make a painting, a sculpture or whatever. (See #1 above.)

    Yes, I understand that the people were only trying to be nice but, like you said, you were busy. I don't think that it would have been out of line if you said it nicely enough.

    Why would one want that?

    Sometimes we are out together shooting, though most often I tell her that I am going out on my own, just to be able to focus on what I do and take the shots I want without having to bother about anyone/anything else.

    No, I don't. I just ask her if she wants to come and she usually will. To me, it's a photo shoot. To her, it's an outing with potential to see something she has never seen before. I guess it really depends on a couple. We tend to participate in each other's hobbies when applicable.

    She usually has one of my simpler cameras. She takes some great photographs every now and then.

    All I have to say is grab your camera baby, and my girlfriend is in the Jeep waiting for me.
