Upload & Sell: On
I occasionally stage a shot but not very often. For example, in the first shot above, the focus should have been spread more across the length of the shadow but I couldn't do it because the guy came up too quick from behind me. If I had the luxuary of a cast of characters to accompany me at least I could do a better job of focus and I wouldn't waste nearly as much time waiting for an interesting person to walk into the scene.
Of course, I also take multiple shots of many characters and usually something decent comes out.
BTW, in case anyone is interested, I just bought a Vello Freewave Plus Shutter Release ($44.95 from B&H). It's far superior to the Nikon ML-3 and costs a third of the price. It has a range of about 100 meters (or 110 yards), can shoot around corners, from inside your pocket, etc. Of course, it has a delay mode too. In this shot I had it in my pocket:
