Portrait Photography Made Easier
Although Nicaraguans have cell phones and are aware of technology, iPhones are rare, and some digital photographic equipment very unsual. To get good portrait photos I take a portable 3x5" image printer. I find it easier to get good portraits of children and families if I print and give them a hard copy of the picture I take. Another technique is to give the camera to the subject of interest to take my photo. My portraiture effort in Nicaragua wasn't as focus as in Honduras, for some reason, but I did get a few good images. To avoid confusion, men taking photos of children should be accompanied by the parent or by a woman, as molesting of teens and children is now a very serious concern everywhere.
