Anyone out there have any tips on this? Yesterday a couple were eating lunch in the window of a little cafe near where I was shooting. I tried several times to catch them not looking at me, but it seems the fat guy with the camera was all there was to look at! So, I thought about stepping inside and just asking them if they minded if I took their picture...but I wasn't sure if they'd think I was some kind of wierdo or what... I tried shooting from the hip, but my aim with a brand new camera is really off. I got alot of shots of grass and sidewalk! I also sat down for a while and took a few without causing alarm.. Do you just "get the shot" and not worry about people thinking you are a stalker or what? I even tried crossing the street, hiding behind a building and popping out 5 minutes later to catch them eating or something - anything - but nope...as soon as I stuck the corner of my lens around the building, the guy was looking right down it straight to my right eyeball! hahahaha... I felt stupider doing that than asking about it now, but only slightly! Any help is appreciated.... I'd like to know what you guys do so take pics out in public without alerting your subject and without causing a scene.
