#nopeople ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi everyone,

I was talking with a friend the other day and he mentioned that there aren’t many people in my shots. Whenever I add tags to my shots on the 500px website it always suggests “No People” and I find myself habitually selecting it, as, in 99.99% plus cases it’s applicable.

I wouldnโ€™t go so far as to define myself as asocial or, if I am at all, then not on the hermit end of the scale and certainly not as antisocial, some of my best friends are people, ๐Ÿ™‚ but I donโ€™t really want people in my shots unless itโ€™s absolutely unavoidable and I actively try and avoid it and I take very few shots, excluding family shots, where the person is deliberately the subject of the shot. Itโ€™s just a personal preference that I want to try capture a landscape scene as naturally as possible singularly uncluttered with people.

Apart from the guy driving the tractor, and I couldn’t really have asked him to pull up, dismount and get out of the shot, and maybe a few distant people on the beach, I don’t think there are very many people in these shots, ducks yes, swans yes, seagulls yes, geese probably, even sheep! but no people. ๐Ÿ™‚
