Not like with a gun but my camera! Did I get you? Anyway I have learned a few things recently about why I have almost no pics with people in them and the ones that do I don't like much. #1. Being a relatively shy person in nature I have a hard time asking total strangers if I can take photo's of them. This I think is why I love candids with big zooms! #2. I feel awkward directing people as to what I want them to do in front of a camera (unless I have had several drinks but by then the pics stink anyway!) I however have absolutley no problem telling people what I want other times though :scratch: #3. Often bothered by the inevitvable 20 questions about my gear, and "do you work for the paper?", or "what kind of photography do you do?" ect ect ect. #4. Many people around this area can be quite cynical and untrusting in nature (this kind of goes with the above as well) In short I have set a goal for myself as of New Years Eve. My resolution for the year was to concentrate much more on "correct, spot on" exposures in the camera, and to become more outward with my photo's and get shot's I normally would have passed on because I was uncomfortable. Goal number 1? There is a butcher shop I noticed downtown yesterday. It is a beautiful throwback to the 50's and 60's. A time where you bought ALL of your meat and cheese from deli's and butchers directly instead of some mega mart. The owners look to be in their 50's or 60's as well and fit very very well. I think it would be REALLY easy to get some unbelievable period type shots in there, and I almost went in and asked but ran out of wits and time I need to kick myself in the bum and get this problem licked! Is or has anyone else been here?
