The best way to take pictures in Burma is to take your time. After decades of being isolated because of their dictatorial regime, people are happy to talk to foreigners. They aren’t camera shy, so it’s a great country for portraits. I especially like 50mm portraits, because you can’t cheat. They tend to show the relationship between the photographer and the subject. And, to be honest, a stupid mistake forced me to shoot all of my Burmese pictures with the 50mm. My other lenses waited for me in their protection bag at home. It turned out to be a good situation, as it forced me to be creative, to move. Because of that travel, I almost never use powerful zoom lenses now.
