Photograph anything, eh?

So Martin (the significant other of Mike's older sister Mary) is a photography buff. For Christmas he received a photography book titled something to the effect of how to photograph anything. And there's a section in there about children.

Which involves how to take candid shots of children playing. You know, using a telephoto lens from a distance.

And also includes advice about giving children something to eat first, since that makes them sleepy and more likely to cooperate.

"Hey kid, would you like a cupcake? I just want to take some pictures of you."

I feel like if poor Martin follows any of the advice out of that chapter, he might end up getting arrested.

doesn't the UK have bizarre, draconian laws against taking pics of kids, too? like you can't take pictures of your kids playing sports, cos you might be a pedo?

gotta love the nanny state.

Giving Mina a cupcake (or any other food) does not make her calm and compliant, just saying. It makes her hyper and sticky. And then she gets greasy fingerprints on the camera lens.
