I’ll cut straight to the chase, here: Street Photography is something I’m really interested in trying out, but I still haven’t done it. And why not, you may ask?
Because it scares me!
I love taking photos of people – that’s the area of photography that really appeals to me, and what I mainly do. And yet all the photos I take are of people I know; people who know that I’m there, and who don’t really mind if I’m snapping away (OK, they may mind a little bit at times, but they normally cheer up when I show them a nice pic of themselves on the LCD).
Taking photos of total strangers? Without prior permission? That’s scary stuff!
So, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject – please leave a comment below. Have you done some street photography? If so, how did you find it? Do you have some tips to share?
Are you interested in trying it, like me, but are a bit nervous?
Or are you dead against it? For instance, if you were just a normal passer by, would you be happy if a random photographer was taking photos of you?
