Yes that is a technical difference but for some subconscious reason both myself and subjects seem to "make" different pictures as well in terms of reaction. Honestly I was not referring to a technical difference. I think my attitude is different in some minor way no matter how hard I try - it just is. And maybe more importantly my subjects seem to be less self conscious - especially if they are not used to being in front of a camera. I know that that would be hard to prove or disprove - just my observations over the years. It is not like I am not there with a camera in both circumstances.
