    If I am directing the shot, the framing, and all the person does is press the trigger, then yes

    That's why many photographers don't like to be in photos, coz the one taking the picture is out of your own control! After you've seen too many non-satisfactory shots with urself inside, u will lose the interest of beting shot...

    Many have said I look better in front of the camera than behind it.

    I should hope so - your profile says part time model A model who looks bad in front of camera probably will have a really short career.

    nah.

    dont like being in photos.

    the others tend to have more handshakes and stuff, bad lighting, harsh flash.

    i'll only be in photo using my camera. after i've set the settings.

    then again, sometimes framing quite bad la.

    too much headroom, cutting of limbs and arms, etc.

    i'm only in like 1% of all the photos i've taken. LOL.

    My main objective in photography is to take photos of the many moments in life that we can looked back and cherish, therfore I believe being in the shot matters alot, this is especially so in travel. Most of the time, I take potraits of my wife or family members, but me being missing in the photos makes it rather incomplete. Just imagine you take a photo of eiffel tower, and you are not in it. In some ways, being in it not only shows that you actually been there, it also captures your emotions.
    But I dont really like letting strangers handle my SLR as they may not be familiar with its functions, composition and framing. Thats why I got a travel tripod (Manfrotto) as well as a remote control. It has served me well in taking great potraits as well as landscape shots with us in the foreground.

    I don't like being in the pictures because ......unless my friends pushed me to jump in before the shutter goes 'click'. I am more comfortable being behind the camera. I think my friends all paiseh that I have to be the unofficial photo snapper. I'm fine with that.....
