Working the Fields in Myanmar
Having a telephoto lens also can provide some good results for portraits. I noticed several women working the rice fields and stopped to shot them. They were quite far off and I could not get near them due to the bank in the road and the rice fields. I stopped and just shot a few wider images as they started taking note of me. As they started standing and smiling my way, I switched cameras to my 100-400mm and starting getting up close to a few of them. As it was so distant, the realization of a zoom lens is not fully understood and people tend to relax much more as she did. I thought this young lady had a radiant smile and was lucky to get her looking my way.
