Question for the Candid photographers.....
Feb 14, 2005

The long and short of it:

Is it custom to ask a person whom you are photographing in a public forum like a park if you can take their picture (thereby oftentimes ruining "candidness" of the photo)?

Or do you just snap away and assume that it is implyed with your big beefy camera and long lens......???

Is there a middle ground???

I ask oftentimes (but not always), but I hate doing so, since people change their mannerisms and expressions when I break out my beefy camera with its beefy lenses (either the 80-200L, or the 24-70)....

What say you???
