    Well I'm relatively new here, but my guess is we have more than one thing in common.

    Yes I know, we're all awesome.. that isn't what I'm thinking though.
    My guess is that we're always the one doing the shooting.

    So, this is my "Other side of the lens" challenge!

    I'd like to see a few of the folks I chat so amiably with here at MU-43, and the avatars can be...... well, graphically misleading, along with the screen names or handles.

    I know there's a self portrait gallery... it's nice, but it runs toward the artsy side eh? I'm talking about someone else just plain shooting you, hopefully with an m43.

    So, give it a whirl. Lets see if we have the guts to show ourselves on the other side of the lens.

    I'll go first since it was my (poor?) idea.

    Here's a photo taken last week at a by a client on location, they're in the visuals business and were excited by the sight of my m43 gear. I took a few of them, then they decided to turn the table and shoot me.

    Have some guts....

    here's one that my wife snapped of me on my 42nd birthday last month. I've explained to her the beauty of natural light photography. She captured this on in the iAuto mode with the aid of that speedy 20mm lens.

    Couldn't resist this one; both of my sons are actually into photography, the older one with the E-PL1 more so than the young goof ball with the E-P1.

    Gary,

    Some work stuff....

    Installing a RAID at Neil Rabinowitz Photography, Bainbridge Island, Wa.
    Easily the furthest client from my home in New England about 3400 miles.

    Thanks

    Thanks, Alan, for the link to Neil's site; he's a great photographer with a great website (though it was definitely straining my poor 5 year old Powerbook G4 12").

    Yes Neil is a wonderful photographer, I've know him for 40 years since we were in our teens.

    I absolutely hate having my picture made, so here is one with me having a beer, blue hair and all......:eek:

    This is about as close as I will ever get to showing what I really look like.

    Taken about 8 weeks ago - my wife complains I'm never in the photos so had this one taken at daughter-in-law's 40th.
