But I must agree , People snapshots are challanging - I love photographing New Zealand & parts of South America - Pierre 0f Canada
People are the toughest subjects because they tend to pose when they see you with a camera, instead of being totaly natural. With animals you just need to be very patient and with scenery you just have to have the right location and light. One of the things I have found very nice about the villages of Myanmar is that the people have had little exposure to tourists taking lots of pictures so they either don't mind you taking their phots or simply ignore you and let you shoot whatever you want as they go about their everyday life. There are great subjects here, from the hill tribes to the waterways and cities and of course if you are into scenery, the huge amount of stupas and pagodas as well as beaches, jungle and even the Himilaya mountains in the north.
Jokulsarlon, Iceland, could have stayed there all day and used all my films up, fantastic place!!
