I Got You To

Suby In The House

Following on from some of the comments received yesterday about taking & posting that image. I decided to post the image above.

Taking about an hour after yesterdays image, it shows what one can normally get when street shooting with a smile. These 2 where in a world of their own having some fun in each others arms, noticed them, (he was looking at me), I raised my camera (he was looking at me), I smiled at him, and took a few shots, (he smiled, told his friend I was taking the shot) and then he smiles and whips out his own camera and snaps me. 

Now this is street photography, unfortunatlely, we can't go over to people and ask if they do not mind having their images taken, or if they did not mind signing this or that document, I try doing it with some respect and dignity I say. I however do sometimes have to ask people if I can take their pictures if it is neccessary. 90% of the time I do get the go-ahead, but this cannot be done for every street shot one takes. "Ah woman crossing street, can I take a picture of you crossing the street? So can you go back and cross said street again". Come on....

Street Photograhy is not for everyone. I do not do it out of desrespect for anyone,  I do it to capture true images of daily going ons. I capture everyday scenes. My style is not "stealth street photography", but "in your face street photography".

Please do all have a read of this article on Street Photography on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Street_photography

P.s

Anyone looking for the services of Suby as a Photographer, you know what to do..... (email me in case some are wondering what. LOL)

Brother I have to say that I think this is the best shot bar none that I've seen from you and I agree with you about not taking pictures by stealth. Most people are only to happy to let you snap away if you smile and let them see the result but sometimes it can't be helped to shot without them knowing as long as you keep their dignity.
Watching me watching you,ha ha, where's Alan Partridge. Very clever shot. I do agree with what you say, but if you look at my posting today, This is an example of having to shoot candid (I much prefer that word to stealth). This is a very nice shot Suby. Wonder what his pic looks like!! Regards, Neil.

Hi Suby, Really nice shot. Love, Joy are shouting from it... And I love the "texture" (I don't know how to call that).

This is a brilliant shot. This could be a fashion shot or an ad for Lumix (what I think his camera is).

Man and you didn't even ask permission of the people in the background - evil subster, you smile

I saw a lot of yesterday's comments were about the guy's rights. In someones constitution it must be included: You have the right not to be photographed.

Our constitution refers to the right to privacy. Amongst others it has been thrashed out to mean what you do in private should remain so and what you do in public is public domain.

I gather the point you are making about the smile is the same as what is referred to in the medical world as good bedside manner. A doctor with or without it is still a doctor and even has patients.

Enjoy your weekend.

Interesting picture, and interesting reading too Suby, thanks for that.

I've been having conversations with family regarding some pictures I'd taken of people and had tried to mention it on the site forum but couldn't manage to start a new thread *blush* Families' opinion was that it was wrong to take/use people pictures without consent, even though they were taken in a public place. You've put my mind at rest.

I love this photo, and your little story to go along with it. I am not at all against street photography, but when someone expresses not wanting to be in a photo, I would respect that. As a photographer you have rights, you can photograph anything or anyone while you are standing on public groud. Without a model release, your photos can only be used editorially (no commercial). Just because you have the right, doesn't mean you should do it. Personally, I like that you stick with your feelings about the photo (yesterdays) and that it shows some real emotion, but I would respect his right to privacy and hold that above my right to use the photo.

wow..!
great shot....i really need someone to boost my spirits...
i'm quite a chicken when it comes to street photography...
another great shot. thanks for the wiki link, i will read that with interest. at the moment i'm bemoaning all the shots i DIDNT take like 25 years ago which now would have been so worthwhile. why didnt i take them? fear of what others would think and shyness. great photographers care more about their message than about how others will judge them, so you just carry on the way you both are, sinem and subester.

this is a fun shot with a title that relfected my very first thought upon seeing it. I like the grain - somehow it gives an authentic feel to the scene. Nice one.
