It takes some time. And patience…
As soon as I pick my camera from my own lap she says ” NO “.
I then rise it to my eye, and she insists: ” Papa, he dit NO ! ” (Dad, I said NO!).
First shot. Hit!
But her fan is covering most of her face (except her spying eye).
A few minutes later, second try. She has just folded her fan. In my mind, I view myself being faster at raising my camera and focusing than her opening her fan and covering her face again.
Fast synchronized (trained) movement: Camera – Eye – Focus – Click.
Focus check (playback) on the viewfinder… She raised her other hand….!!!
How could she be that fast!?!? And fully synced with the shutter!!!
After a while of playful wrestling…
…she relaxes. The game is over. The weather is too hot here in summer for any unnecessary movement…
