    Hi Folks. The most asked question I get is ''How do you do it?'' How can I get into street photography?
    Do you have any tips and or advice?

    These are my opinions regarding my technique and hence I can only share what works for “me”. These tips should not be considered Gospel…
    More here.

    Thanks! :D I saw those two obviously being flirty toward each other, and was waiting for the right moment; plus it ties well into a series I'm building up of photos entitled "Companionship".

    Some great stuff in this post. Quite a few made me laugh and quite a few made me wonder what the heck the story was behind them. I think that's a big part to street shooting.

    Myself however, I haven't really tried much of this yet. I don't have much for zoom at the moment and don't feel comfortable shooting people whom I don't know and them knowing I'm doing it.

    A couple weeks ago I wanted to get a homeless fellow. I was going to ask if I could take a few photos and offer 5$, but as I was walking over he got up and started shaking a tree beside him.

    I turned around.

    Thanks for the comments. Street shooting is not for everyone and it is difficult at first. But like all things, you get used to it after a while.
