One time i went on to a photoshoot but my regular photographer was not able to come so i had my friend use my camera to take the pictures. He could not get the kind of angles i would like to have for my pictures so i tried to help him with positioning the canera. He got mad that I didn’t like the pictures he was taking. I should have been more greatful that he was willing to help me out when i needed it.
