As soon as folk clock the large DSLR I lug around with me in clubs, there’s this almost instant want to have their photo taken. If it’s for the paper, club, myself, whatever… they don’t care and mostly avoid asking, often opting to grab my shoulder and demand one.
Things are a little different when I’m on the street, using my smaller mirrorless X-E2, and there’s more of a willingness to come up and ask what I’m taking photographs for.
Granted, there’s a whole bunch who end up wanting their photo taking anyway… so maybe it’s not that different after all, and perhaps it’s simply just quiet enough outside to ask?
