It's been a long time since I've posted in this forum. My wife and I have been living in Southern Turkey for 2 months now. I have always dreamed about living overseas and taking pictures of my travels. I don't know why but for some reason, I'm having a serious problem mustering up the courage to walk around with my camera gear. I am not particularly afraid of being robbed or anything like that... Rather, I think the fact that I am simply overwhelmed by not being able to speak to anyone or explain myself that I am afraid of taking pictures around people. I am thinking about having some business cards made with a link to my website and my email address so I can hand it out to people that I take pictures of as a form of basic friendly communication. I think having some kind of way to explain that I mean no harm and being able to offer a link to my pictures would help be feel confident enough to get out there, but I am not sure. Does anyone have any advice or words of wisdom that might help me find the courage to get out there? I really love taking street portraits and every day that goes by is a wasted day. I am also looking for a good supplier of m43 gear in Turkey. If anyone can point me in that direction, I would really appreciate it.
