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
