And what type of camera do you use, is it SLR?

Finally, can you show on map where is the Jizev valley?

Welcome Bli55,

I'm pretty shy myself about taking photos of people, usually I only have taken a photo of someone or a group if there has been some kind of interaction between us, such as If I have spent the last 15mins hanging out talking to them, It kind of helps to tell the story. I also always ask before I take out my camera and 99% of the time people are really happy and obliging
I'm using a Fuji x100s, it's kind of like a hybrid, small but using a slr sized sensor.

Jizev is approximately 25km from Rushan. (From the Map "The Pamirs" excellent map btw)
