I gave up on getting a photo of both boys together where they are not being unreasonably goofy, out of focus or half out of the shot. I accept not looking at the camera and not smiling at the same time, but not the rest.
This year I thought “What about the dinos? What about the clones?” They can reasonably be expected to stay in the frame, not shove one another around, make fart jokes and maybe even look at the camera.
The goal was a balanced shot with dinos & clones focused in the foreground and a bokeh tree in the background.
Not quite balanced & some confusion about looking at the camera, but a good start
Apparently three of them thought the camera was above them
They have found the camera but Greenie is out of focus and again there is a balance issue
Greenie decides to leave the shot entirely
Maybe some solo photos
Knock it off you guys!
one more shot
Seriously. I can’t even get inanimate objects to all look at the camera.
