The single best portrait tip ...

I don't remember where exactly, but I do remember reading somewhere to take a big bag of sweets with me to Cambodia. It said it would be good to give the children something after you have photographed them.


With this girl, I thought, "Why not give her the sweets before I take the shot?" I waited for her to open it and pop one before opening the shutter ... and you can see the effect it had on her.


Added to the Cream of the Crop pool as most interesting.


Siem Reap, Cambodia
