Why do women who breast feed in the open at a party - get upset when pics are taken in the vicinity?
Small rant. I was asked to take photos at a close friends wedding and reception. It was a small/ simple wedding, and they weren't planning on getting a photographer - so i was the next best thing, lol. I was happy and honored to do it. Fast forward a bit, i have a delicate conversation where apparently one of the guests felt uncomfortable with the pictures being taken in her vicinity while she was breast feeding. Now i'm miffed. It's not like i invaded her private grotto and made her the subject of the photo - she was feeding her baby at the table, with other guests present, and frankly,i couldn't have known, looking through a viewfinder, setting a scene that she was feeding her baby. MY focus was the toast, or the bride with friends, or the groom arm wrestling his best man, etc. But sure enough - in all of these great shots, off in the corner, or background, there's a scowling, angry face being worn by this woman. Is it really up to the photog to be aware this, at a party?
