Husbands and your photography hobby
Just for the sake of a little fun "girl talk", I was curious about what your husbands are like with regards to your hobby?
Mine is super supportive and really helpful. He encouraged me to scout out great places to shoot for our upcoming Vegas trip, he stopped soooo many times on our road trip to Alberta this summer for me to take shots, even when I didn't ask to stop, and if we're out together he gets the kids to look if he can see I'm lining up a shot. He was so tempted to send me to a macro photography course this summer, knowing how much I LOVE macro; but it was so much money that he finally realized we couldn't do it -- but you could see the decision pained him greatly! He even suggested that our next date be a trip to the city to take some cool slow shutter speed shots and stuff like that. And he's my "tech guy". He reads DP Review stuff ALL the time and tells me about the latest camera news, new lenses, what's worth buying and what isn't, etc. Even though we can't afford most of it, he figures out what would get the most bang for our buck when we can afford a new lens or whatever.
The one thing that makes me smile about him, though, is that he is 100% genuine and "real"... which means, he isn't really all that crazy about me cloning out, say, some food on one of the kids' cheeks; or taking a moment to straighten their shirts before I take a shot. He likes photography to record what life is really like. So it's kind of a funny thing, because the more I've gotten into photography, the more I realize that attention to detail is really a big part of what makes a great shot. The right clothes, straight collars, moving 1 foot to the left to get some unslightly thing out of the photo's background, etc. And he's like, "But that's the way it IS! Take the shot!" (My mom is super detail-oriented and now he's teasing me that I'm becoming just like my mom. Oh dear! :O)
What about your husbands or significant others?!
