Me and my Buddy by micklyn

Currently unavailable for purchase

His name is Hudson, but we call him Buddy. We have this ancient radio that has cool details and I had an idea to use it as a backdrop for a portrait photo, but when I asked him to pose for me, all I got was goofy grins and serious self-consciousness until I had the bright idea to give him the remote release and let him do it himself. Once he got going, there was no stopping him! As far as he was concerned, I wasn’t even there. The delight on his face has got nothing to do with quality time with Mom, and everything to do with ‘male-remote-control-delight-response’…..

Canon 400D, natural light.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    What a wonderful portrait – the light is beautiful and I love your comment about males and remote controls, all too true!

  • Thanks, Martie! the light was really low, which is why my camera was tripod mounted in the first place, so I had a really slow shutter speed and my other problem was trying to get him to keep still ( :

    But I had a good laugh at the description!! I suffer from severe male-remote-control-delight-response’…..:-)

  • So if you do self-portraits using a remote, do you get a similar image?? Thanks Vikram!
