Photographer's Note

While walking around the streets in Balat with Deniz and my girlfriend Tosca, we encountered a number of people who were more than willing to have their photograph taken.

Before taking this photo, I had just shot some photos in HDR, therefore I had my camera on a tripod and I also was using my wide angle lens. The wide angle is certainly not the best lens to use for portraits, but what was I going to do?

This family were so nice to sit here and welcome me in, it's not like i'm going to say to them - well can you give me a minute or two to take my camera off my tripod and while i'm at it change my lens?

So i basically just had to go with what I was using at the time - i didn't want to upset them.

Its not the sharpest of photographs, I wish I had taken more time to adjust the settings, wish I had increased the ISO to get a faster shutter. Oh well, it was a spur of the moment type of scene and shot.

Hope you like it
