Are we all P&S shooters who extend our arms to get a shot? Working in concerts and the like you don't want your LCD being a focal point to those behind you so generally your face is up in the LCD trying to block the LCD. The reversed left hand should be some indication that she's purposely trying to be compact.

I don't understand what you're saying. You can't see the LCD screen that close to your face, and you can't see your subject. If you did what she is doing, you wouldn't see what you're taking a picture of.

The camera appears to be 6"-12" from her face. I often do this especially when trying to achieve critical focus. Also this position provides better stability than extended arms. If this is too close for your eyes to focus it is good the NEX has a great screen and are able to see adequate detail with the camera further away. But its ignorant to say you can't see anything with the camera that close.
