Keep doin' it, Bob! Personally its the personal touch that takes an ordinary photo and takes it to the next level. I spent so many years trying to keep people out of my shots. Then, I took a look at photos from the 1940's, 50's, etc. and realized that people will one day look back at my photos and see "what it was like". The same goes for cars although there are times it is better they are not there. As for the crew or just a member of the crew being in the photo, I think it is fantastic. I am hesitant when taking closeups of the crew as I am not sure how they feel about it. Leaning out and waving seems like a good way to show you do not mind. Great question and thread, Bob!
