When you go out for a project you need an assistant to carry your things, so it can be more comfortable for you and you can be focused on taking pictures. My main assistant is my lovely husband and I should admit that he is good at his job; well, most of the time. While I’m shooting, he carries the empty camera bag and my purse that’s filled with my personal belongings. So far so good.
However, he is always in the visual field and as a result he is in most of the photos. So I have to retake the same photo without him and sometimes it is time-consuming. At other times, he is not always around especially when I need him. For example, if I need something from the camera bag, lets say the soft cloth to clear the lens, he is far away. I don’t know how my assistant will cope, when I will acquire more gear, like tripod or different types of lenses! I am not complaining that much, am I? Ok, maybe just a little! There’s also a positive side to this. For example, he enjoys being in nature and he doesn’t complain when it takes me too long when shooting things and, plus, he keeps me company. I should also admit, that sometimes, when I think that the composition looks good, I include him in the picture on purpose. But that’s only a few times!
