18. Tell The Truth

Sometimes (sometimes) telling the truth is the best way to set up those wonderfully candid and honest shots of others.

Strangers usually concede when you plead and woo with sincere flattery and a wink to soften them—“I just have to take your picture! You’re gorgeous with the cute cap on!”

And it way very well be that they are not really “beautiful” in the most conventional sense, but since something about them caught your eye, something out of the ordinary, than it is not difficult to convey with utter sincerity that you indeed do find them pleasing to your eye, and beauty is beholden to that of the beholder.
