Ryan: Stop mugging for the camera and stand still!
Katrina: I’ve been standing still for 10 minutes, while you’ve been setting up the shot. I have to do something. This is boring![audio:http://media.libsyn.com/media/eslpod/ESLPod791.mp3|titles=ESL Podcast – Taking Photographs]
Ryan: I almost have the settings right. Okay, let’s try a shot. Say “cheese.”
Ryan: Oh, you look washed out in that shot and it’s blurry. I think the flash came on when I didn’t want it to. You have red-eye, too. I’ll have to adjust the settings again.
Katrina: Hurry up!
Ryan: Okay, I think I’ve got it now. Get back into your pose. Lift your head a little to the side and face the sun…
Katrina: Take the picture!
Ryan: I just need to focus. There! Say “cheese” again.
Ryan: Um, it’s still not perfect. Let me put the camera on a tripod. Try to stay still while I do that.
Katrina: I thought you wanted this shot to look like a candid.
Ryan: I do, but how am I supposed to make it look like a perfect candid if you keep moving out of your pose?
