Who was taking Armstrong's picture from behind, as he was putting mans first foot steps on the Moon?

The video was shot by a camera pre-mounted on a hinged panel on the side of the Lunar Excursion Module. The camera was aimed and focused while the spacecraft was still on Earth, and the panel was opened just before Neil Armstrong descended the ladder to the surface of the moon.

There was a Camera, Remotely Controlled that was installed upon the leg of the landing stage of the Lunar Module

The black and white video footage of Neil Armstrong coming down the ladder and eventually radioing "That's one small step ..." was taken using a remote contolled camera on a boom from one of the lunar lander's legs. Remember, this was going to be a major moment in human history so the camera angle, position, etc was all carefully planned and rehearsed in advance.
The colour photo I think you are referring to is a picture of Buzz Aldrin coming down the ladder taken by Neil ...
It is often misreported as Neil coming down the ladder.

It's actually on a boom; Armstrong pulled a handle, attached to a wire that swung the boom into position. And - it's looking at him face-on, not from behind.

The picture isn't from 'behind'' .. look again !
It was taken by one of the cameras on the outside of the Luna Module.
Like the one that filmed the landing itself.
Where do you think that one was ?
Do you mean the picture of Buzz Aldrin stepping down
TAKEN ''from behind'' BY Neil Armstrong .. who was already on the surface ?

The camera crew of course who were shooting the staged landing.
