Drum - In the user gallery section, and the site gallery section, there is a system defect preventing the EXIL data from showing. It's there, but it won't show. This has been a thorn in my side for almost a year with several consultants/developers having looked at it and they all agree it's an issue with the site system operating system. This is scheduled to be fixed early next year when the new version is released.

In the article sections I manually put the EXFIL because I know it's useful to viewers.

As fas as people complaining. Choosing the right lens for the job is a critical skill. It is possible to take a close-up of someones face from 30-50feet away if using for instance a high-quality 300mm lens. In this case they might not even be aware you're taking their photograph. On the other hand, to get a closeup with a 35mm lens, say on my Fuji x100, then I need to get close and in some cases invade their personal space. In this case I need to work with the subject so they know what I'm doing and they're prepared for me getting close. This is a skill unto itself and something we do in the model workshops, we get you used to working close in and directing a model and in the street shooting workshops we take you out and show you how to approach complete strangers and get close for a great shot. Most of this comes down to people skills.

People skills are some of the hardest skills to learn, so if you have those down you're far ahead of most. But sure, a lens with a long reach can allow you to step back out of their personal space and this might be preferred depending on what you're trying to accomplish.

Keep asking questions Drum. They're good questions and I'm sure many learn from them.
