Listener Question

Question from listener Claus:

Whenever I take a picture of my six year old and she is aware of the camera she’ll go stiff and have a “fake smile”. She so desperately wants a pretty photo of herself, that it completely takes over.

The best shots are those that I can sneak of her, but those aren’t always blessed with the best composition.

So calling all parents, uncles, aunts (etc.) – how can I help my six year old to forget there is a camera and just smile at the bloke behind the camera (a.k.a. dad) as she normally would…
