How perceptive are people to having themselves or property photographed?
It is interesting how people react to being photographed or having their property photographed. Living here in Iowa in the Midwest most of this area is farm country. I stop along the road and photograph barns old buildings and other things. Most of the times I find the farmers around here are pretty receptive about what I am doing and if I ask they have no problem letting me shoot their old barns. Many times they are confused about why I would want to. The one thing I find is People many times are not comfortable about being photographed. For me that is not much of a problem because I do not photograph people that much, but I know many of you do. I am sure there are many interesting stories out there about your experience in dealing with people. I talked to a photographer in California here a while back and he was just amazed I could get on peoples property like I do. He said in his area that was not as easy. What experience have you had in your area? Monte Johnson.
