Not much to say about this one – just something to keep in mind as the weather turns sour wherever you may be living. We’re enjoying unseasonably warm/sunny weather in Taiwan, but I know that’s not the case in the US.
I’m all for showing “how it is” when using photography as a medium, but it’s hard to know what to do with abject poverty. Am I taking advantage of it for my portfolio? Am I educating people about it? Is that education doing any good? So much to ask. Matt Brandon recently had a discussion like this on the ProPhoto blog after it was mentioned by a reader. Check that out.
If anything, it’s something to keep in mind the next time I whine about not owning a D3 or f/2.8 zoom lens.
