People photography has always been a bit of a challenge for me. I am fairly introverted and it is a little intimidating to point the camera towards a stranger. While traveling, I have encountered people who do not want their photo taken or ask for money in return. Sometimes I will try to get a photo while remaining unnoticed, other times I have just asked if the subject would mind their photo being taken. The latter does not always produce the genuine product a photographer looks for and may result in the subject asking for a monetary tip. Generally a few coins will do.
