. . . and I didn't argue. Taken while doing geological fieldwork in

The Hadramaut area, an area where the inhabitants aren't used to

seeing a white face. Yet the people were very hospitable.

Don't think I would have argued either. I probably would have had camera shake. A very good portrait, though.

Did you gave him a print?! And you tell us they weren't hostile? I guess he was your guide or something?


Nice portrait, but I would prefer to have more space on the right than on the left.

Stephanie, I did send a print to his village, hoping that the people there would be able to get it to him. As far as my composition goes, I was somewhat nervous while taking this shot and didn't put much thought into the spacing.

Robert, I believe you about being nervous when composing!! I am sometimes when its just relative, so I can't even imagine what it would be for me trying to frame a man with a gun that insists I take his portrait.


BTW, it's Stephane!! No "i"... :)

Absolutely no problems Robert! I'm very used to it. Since little school I'm called Stephanie once in a while. And here on Photo.Net is no exception. I can't count on my two hands how many times it happened!
