Have you ever tried to get three small kids to hold still long enough to take a large format 4″x5″ photo? Not an easy task. The biggest challenge was from the time I had the camera focused and having them hold still until I could close the shutter, set the aperture and timer, load film, and pull the slide. Might only be about 20 seconds but that is a LONG time for a 3-year old. I got it done and ended up with a picture I like, despite the telephone pole growing out of Charlie’s head and a little blur with Jemima.
