The New York TimesMatt Gross recently featured a Q&A with travel photographer Robert Caplin in his “Frugal Traveler” column. Caplin’s images have been published in National Geographic, ESPN The Magazine and The New York Times, and in the discussion with The Frugal Traveler, he talks about shooting with a Canon 5D Mark II as well as an iPhone, and names the Canon G11 as his go-to point-and-shoot if he had to spend under $500 for a camera.

Whereas in the U.S., photographing children is  fragile and often dangerous ground for photographers to trample, even for those of us with the best intentions, in Mexico the children and their guardians seem to welcome the chance for little ones to be in front of the lens. However, there are two things about photography that I have learned over the years that have helped me to understand the true experience of these orphaned children even better.
