|Ellliott Erwitt - Dennis Hopper - Annie Leibovitz|
As a photographer (and principally a portrait one), and speaking for myself I can state that I would rather be in back of a camera than facing one. But occasionally when someone wants to snap my picture I relax as I don’t have to think about how to take the photograph. I leave that up to the person behind the camera that is facing me.
I like to use the expression “who shaves the barber?” lots. I have written about the subject in many links below.
Years back I faced two well known photographers and an actor that I happened to know was a very good photographer, too. I have combined the three in this blog and I will not add any more information except that I am glad I did not think of taking their picture holding a camera or being with one.
There is one important link that for the three. I used a Mamiya RB-67 Pro-S with the 140mm macro lens with a floating element.
