Well, not much to say about this hole in my archive.

Likely because it is still very hard for me to take pictures of human beings. I'm actually quite shy when it comes to asking people, if I might take pictures of them. Of course you can take photos without asking, what might result in either very "natural" ones or in pain (if you photograph the girl friend of a really jealous body-builder).

I believe the "victim" should be asked in any case,even if the picture is just for your personal use. (I believe so as I have seen too many party shots from myself and therefore know - it can hurt seeing yourself on a picture)

I have to change and try to ask people for their confirmation, because I believe it is a really interesting section of photographing - and you can direct the objects (normally) as you like. Try that with a bear ....
