I saw another thread about finding subjects, but I want to provide my own dilemma. I dont work for any newspaper, school or otherwise. My only current goal is to take pictures of people and things in public and share them with people I know. Not just random meaningless crap obviously, but compelling photography. Is there anything wrong with that? I always feel so uncomfortable taking pictures of unsuspecting people, who then look at me like I'm a creeper. Should I care? Should I start a photo blog or something so I have a "higher purpose?" I want more subjects also, and I realize that they're all around me, but everyone is afraid to have their picture taken. Someone also mentioned talking to people if I want to look professional. (snaps photo, and gets noticed) Person: So what's the photo for? Me: Just a hobby Person: ...ok (gives a weird look) That's what I'm experiencing so far. Thanks for helping out someone who doesn't know what they're doing. I really really appreciate it!
