It is amazing what you can get an 8 and 5 year old to do with the bribe of $1. On Saturday, I got to spend some time with the Family and practice shooting in FULL MANUAL mode and finally apply what I had learned from my Photography class. Dialogue as follows:
Me: Tanner, Spencer! Come outside with me, I want to take some pictures of you.
Tanner and Spencer (dragging their feet): Okay... But YOU have to find my shoes!
4 minutes later...
Tanner: I'm bored, can we go inside? I'm in the middle of my Star Wars Lego Build!
Spencer: Heavy Sighing
Me: Okay.... If you guys cooperate, and listen to me when I say "Smile" and "look at me", then I will give you $1 whole dollar each for your time!
Spencer and Tanner (gasping): $1 dollar!? Well what if we do it for 20 minutes... do we get $2? and 30 minutes.. $3 dollars?
6 minutes in....
Tanner: Okay.. I'm fine with just one dollar.
Hope you enjoy!
