We all have different perceptions about the Tibetan, the best is to take a trip to Tibet
and interact with them.

Trying hard to recall on those people I met during my trip at Tibet.
Those that had my attention and related to.
Posted some before.. here would be a collection of people I met.

2. A Bagger Boy

A beggar boy is just as happy as any child.. he also like to have
funs and Joy.
Do share happiness with them.. give them a sweet or something
that cheer their life.
Do not ignore them just because they look dirty .. only
when they are rude and demand for cash.


With a mentols in his mouth , he salutes me..

The boy is so striking! Look at his dirty hands!

Btw, how did you get him to pose for you? Did you all speak the same language? Or was it just gesticulations and actions?:dunno:

I spoke some simple Mandarin with smiling gesture with him.
I am kind of lucky that he and a few children initiated the shooting.
Show them their pix whenever you think you should... avoid oily
fingers touch on your cam.

Your sincere smile is a catalyst in the process of shooting people.

I try not to ask for any "pose.".. look for their natural pose and action
while in the process of communicating them.
This is quite different from Model & Fashion shooting.
We want to capture the "real" person and portray something unique about them.



All the best !!

Thanks zoossh, I am using a WA lens 12-24 and the distortion is a typical result of this lens.

You might see such distortion in many int'l reporter street shots...
IMHO, if you use appropriately, this distortion create some impact in certain extend.
This depends very much on individual preference. :)
F6.3 Aperture priority at 12mm.

3. Smiling Monks

They all smile very warmly to me when I pointed my camera at them
They look all about the same size and have same warm smile.
Remind me of Monks of the same smile flock together.
They tried very hard to smile even under harsh glaring sunshine..
really appreciate their gesture.

5. An Elderly lady

She was about to get up.. with a great smile.
A typical style of tie near their kneel to facilitate the "fall" when worshipping.
She must be smiling to some one.:)
