Subject: [Leica] Lying to subjects?

Hi to all,

I preface this question by saying that I'm certainly not perfect, and
"massage" the truth sometimes. I have chinks in my character like anyone

At a restaurant last week, I went back into the kitchen to photograph the
kitchen help. They were agreeable and posed for me. One of them asked "are
you from a magazine?" Without thinking I said yes, and continued. First
thought was maybe they're cooperating because they think that - if I told
them I was just taking pictures for my PAW (they'd *never* understand
that...<g>) then things would not go as well. Better to lock it down, so to

What do others do in spontaneous, candid situations?

Many TIA,

Jeffrey F.
