My extended 5 month stay this year in Nicaragua, is proving to be wonderful for making connections with the locals and having much freedom to photograph the people in the communities in and around the north-west coast of Nicaragua.
This year I have been primarily shooting with the Micro 4/3 system cameras and lenses - and enjoying the compact and small size immensely. The image quality does not suffer in any way either. My image management and editing tool of choice has switched from Photoshop/Bridge - to Lightroom 4 - including dodging and burning.
