Hmmmmm..... how should I interpret the fact that no photographer has ever approached me and asked to take my photo?
Huh. I don't think I have been either, except when people want to get a pic with me. I remember a few pics of me surfaced in magazines and newspapers when I was totally anonymous and giving blood as a 23-year-old, but I don't remember anyone asking permission. But I never mind.
that was interesting, thank you...not so easy for me though as I'm often in countries where I don't speak the language.
I could learn to say a few lines but if the subject came back with words I didn't know I'm screwed...lol
one thing i did like what they said was about an IG channel, so at least then you could show people what and why you want their image
Wow, that turned out to be excellent. I am that guy who will walk up to anyone and ask for their portrait. At the Body Art Convention, nobody said no.
Maybe you can get Jamie to join Cake?
My conversation with a perfect stranger in a street caught by a friend. I had no camera that day, i just waved at guy and asked about banners hanging around... it started from banners ended at what i was doing there, he became eager to help us with photographs!
Tarahumara indians, they were actually glad to pose for us. at the time..
though every time I look at them I still feel sad for some reason, and don't think taking their pictures was right.. we're not better or entitled to peek into their life as if watching fish in a bowl.

This fellow was extremely convincing that he was going to catch squid with this equipment, and explained it in the most genuine newfinese - you have to experience it to appreciate that!
Wow, what a great shot! I love the natural lighting.
