Oh, I've got some super photos of you Simon. Taken with a 20mm f2.8 Nikkor.
Unfortunately whenever I take a photo of you they always come out less than pin-sharp.
I get so excited I just can't stay still. My blood pressure and pulse rise alarmingly and I perspire unnecessarily; which makes holding a heavy D3 with a full steel lens on, something of an ordeal. Especially being as unsteady on my feet as I am, and in addition, being so digitally challenged.
If you were of the other gender, I could fully understand my physiological agitation, but ........
I can only put it down to being face to face with a real-life celebrity, from the Valleys, no less, that does it.
Coupled with you being such a significant figure in the BFTA hierarchy: oh, and a pro tog, of course.

Perhaps if we both wobbled in a syncopated rhythm, it might work.

I could try using a tripod - but you're never still long enough for that.

Could you perhaps consider an A minus Grade, especially for me ????
You're only young once - so it's best to make it last for the whole of your lifetime.
