My first camera was a Kodak 110 camera. It was a great camera for a ten year old who just wanted to point and shoot. I really didn’t get serious with photography until I took my first photography class in high school. Even then I always wanted to take pictures of people on the street and I didn’t want want them to know so I didn’t get close to my subject.
Fast forward many decades, my camera has zoom and also I did get a zoom lens with greater capability. Still, I really don’t want to get close to my subject and I really don’t want to take pictures that everybody else is taking. Case in point, like this photo of other people getting close to the baby to take the picture.
However I got over my dislike of getting close to my subject. I just have to go about it differently. Here is a box of lucky money they were selling for Chinese New Year.
