+infiniteMPG Posted September 15, 2008 Share Posted September 15, 2008 Wanted to see how the photo-cachers handle this situation as I know I can't be the only one that this happens to. You and your significant other grab your geocaching gear and snag your camera and hit the trails or load it up in the 'yak and hit the water. As you're traveling along you see something really REALLY neat and you stop in your tracks and reach for your camera. As you're trying to frame the shot, or get the light or angle right, you glance over to see your caching-mate disappearing around the bend. So you snap a could quick shots and run (or paddle fast) to catch up. So the next time you see something, you compromise the camera settings and framing and snap and run. Sometimes you don't even stop while you shoot. My girlfriend and I run thru this constantly. She doesn't give me grief about it and have she is pretty compromising about it but I can tell she's bored while I'm shooting and I try my best to do it quick. She loves the pictures and re-living the trip with them later, but while we're on the trail or the water, I think I'm compromising some of the shots by not taking my time. She doesn't like hauling stuff with her as I'm the pack mule so having her haul a camera of her own is pretty much out of the question. I can see both sides of the issue but wondered how others handle this situation. Quote Link to comment
