Anyone here ever been the obvious subject for a PJ? What do you do when you know it's you?

I was giving a speech in Boston last week. Some press around as well as event people. Had seen the photog in the hall beforehand and chatted a bit about his gear (D3s). Although he had an SB-900 mounted he never needed it even though the lighting was dimmed in the room. He showed me a few shots of me. The low ISO performance is really amazing. Too bad he didn't have a better looking subject.:biggrin:

Anyway, he fired away during my talk, and I avoided staring into the camera. When I took a sip of water - I was up there for 40 minutes at their request - I did say hi to him from the podium and that some day I'd love to have a D3s.

If he happens to be a cafe member and on this thread, great talking with you. And, although I'd like to have your camera, I'm confident that it's the eye of the photog, not the camera, that makes great pix.

I've been photographed any number of times on the streets, probably because I carry a lot of old film SLR or rangefinder gear when I'm shooting.
And because I don't make a practice of asking everyone I shoot for their permission, I really don't care whether I'm asked for mine or not. Depending on the circumstances, I may or may not strike up a conversation with the photographer, but it really isn't important.
So far I haven't turned up naked on the Internet so I don't really worry about it.
