    My daughter is quite specialised on doing this to my attempts to take her photo. But then she gets my "stern look" (which I am very good at!) and soon lets me take her pic.
    I have never had this reaction out in the street so far, but then my experiences of street photography are still quite limited (and often taken with the telezoom from so far away that people don't see me).

    I could publish a 100 page book of these pictures.
    I have two cousins that are FAMOUS for this.
    The only way to photograph them is to be in stealth mode... and then be able to run like the wind the second the flash goes off.

    I was doing a photojournalism project for a course at school some time ago, and this lady actually came up to me to make sure that I wouldn't include her in my picture. Took me 2 minutes to calm her down.

    there were these three old men sitting on a bench under a walmart sign... I asked them if they would mind having their pictures made as I was really shooting the sign, but wanted them to be in the shot. (Yes I really wanted them not the sign) they said hell no.

    these guys were too old be in cop trouble... oh well.... by the way I wouldn't even ask these days just shoot the darn thing and let the devil sort it out later.

    I have no idea what it is with pictures but my mom was the same way she hated having her picture made.

    uhm, well, actuylly, I have to admit, that I (yes ME MYSELF) tend to avoid the other side of the camera! Which always means a lot of pain for those people who want to capture me on film or sensor ;)

    As with people I do not know personally, I am always overcautious with taking pictures of them, in particular people in other countries, poor people or strange people, .. in other words, all the interesting people!

    God, I hate that. What's even worse than that is when they give the insincere smile. The smile that says: "I'm so disappointed that you are taking a picture of me, but I'm trying ever so hard to humor you."
