You are the man!

From the Christmas 2009 Photobooth series (an ongoing process)

When I had the gear set up for the photobooth shots, I wanted to try getting a few shots of myself that I could put together and have two of me in one shot. When the camera is on a tripod this can be easily done with multiple shots of the same scene in Photoshop.

Anyway, my dad saw me doing this and said “Oh, I want to try that!” I gave him the remote trigger for the camera, left the room and let him loose. When I reviewed the shots on my computer later, it looked like he only took these two shots. It’s pretty cool that he got his fingers to just about line up evenly.

I have many more shots that will go into this series; of everyone that was at a Christmas gathering for both of our families. I had been too busy to process them so far this year, but once I realized I had unprocessed photos of my dad I wanted to get the ones with him in them processed and posted for everyone to see.

He was so creative in his conceptual photography, and I’m glad that I had the chance to let him try something that he normally wouldn’t have done himself. However, I am saddened that I didn’t get this put together in time for him to see the finished result. I do believe that he would have been very happy with a big smile.
