"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Take a Bridal Party Photo for Strangers

The project:
Borrow the photographer's camera to take a photo that INCLUDED.

30 seconds

Why bother?
How many times have you looked back at family trip photos, special event photos, only to discover that, as far as the photographic record shows, you weren't THERE! As official family or friend photog, maybe you don't get a chance to get in the group shots, and even when you do then some OTHER group member is missing.

While at a bonfire at the beach this evening, the neighboring bonfire was host to a bridal party having one last beach hurrah before the Bride's Big Day. The ladies were taking a group shot, so I stepped in and offered to take it so they could ALL be included.

Worth it?
Yes - I love taking photos anyhow, but the ladies were super appreciative of the offer.

  1. What a great idea and yes, I sometimes wonder if my children will know that I actually did anything with them if they just look at the photos.
