    While a lot of what is said here is true, people are far less formal today than in the past.

    When I was growing up in the 50s my parents would drag out the Kodak Brownie Hawkeye and we would stand there like a stick in front of something and smile. No hugging etc.

    These days people have had a lot of pictures taken of themselves especially in some sort of group and they automatically all hug together and look far more fun and relaxed.

    I prefer the pictures today much more than the stiffness and embarrassment of yesterday.

    I think what you do when you're photographing causes that reaction. If you follow the theory of act like you're suppose to be there and do the snapping discreetly, you get better candid photographs. I've managed to get very natural candid photos of friends with my 4x5 camera purely because they didn't think it actually was a functioning camera that I used.

    That might be the same as I've discovered when I pull out a 1930's folding camera: People relax and smile, instead of stiffening up and looking hostile as they do if you aim a recognisable modern camera at them. The "drawback" is the incredible amount of invitations to "come and have a look - my grandfather had a camera just like that, I'm sure I can find it in a drawer somewhere"... it's (almost) invariably a Kodak Instamatic.

    The proliferation of shitty digicams has resulted in this.

    PS...there is a time limit to edit a post...I've forgotten the time limit (should be on the site's Q&A section)
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
