A

You’d be mortified to be caught taking the picture? Or to have had your picture taken?

I generally give them a smile and carry on, some people just smile back. I’ve only had 3 arguments with people over it. They’ve all been men around 50 years of age. Its good. It gives me a reason to stand my ground. And if I cannot justify why I took their photo, well, I guess I shouldn’t carry on taking photos. (NB. These arguments all happened when I was using film. They often asked for their image to be deleted. Not that I would have done even given the opportunity.)

Why Anon? Thanks for the question though.

Shooting in digital is throwing up so many editing… things, that I just didn’t care about when shooting film. It’s more complicated.
