When you think about it, a camera is a very threatening object to a lot
of people. That’s because cameras represent the possibility of an
invasion of privacy. It captures people’s actions, candid moments, and
things people might not always want recorded. In other words, in front
of and around a camera, people often feel vulnerable and exposed. The
camera doesn’t discriminate. It does not
censor itself. It captures everything you put in front of its lens.
That’s why it’s up to the photographer to make their subjects and those
around him feel at ease in the presence of his camera.
One way of doing this is to "smile" sincerely at your subjects and those around you! Keep Smiling... Keep Clicking!
