About 30 years ago, I was in China and saw a woman walking on a path carrying twins in two baskets suspended by a bamboo pole, typical of how many Asian workers carry loads. It was a classic travel shot, but I missed it because with my medium format film camera, I had the wrong lens on and she disappeared before I was able to ask her for a shot. I never forgot it, though, so this time in Burma I asked my local guide to set up something similar. In this picture, the little boy is balanced by a load of firewood. I used a 100-400mm lens set to 300mm, and my settings were 1/320, f/5, and 400 ISO. I took this picture from a kneeling position because I prefer the low angled perspective.
