Thread: Photography etiquette question

  1. #1

    Exclamation Photography etiquette question

    If you are shooting a small subject with a macro setup and all of a sudden, another "friendly" photographer whom you do not know just position his/her lens in front of your lens, thereby blocking your view, what would you do? What would be a good way of presenting your displeasure with such "friendly" behavior?

    Nicely and politely tell him that he is blocking you and that after you have taken your shot you will go for another shot.
    always the Light, .... always.

    I don't think "stupid" is the word. It's a matter of courtesy.
