    Hi, I'm really interested in taking photos of random, interesting people on the street in my city.

    Is there a specific way of asking permission to take their photo?

    THANKS!

    :)

    there are lots of threads about this. yes there is, you go up to them and not say "can i take your picture" but something like "i'm a photographer and i was wondering if you would be okay with me taking a picture of you .... " fill in the "..." with what ever. get the idea? its not to just ask to take a picture but sort of explain your self.

    others say just shoot the shot because it will be how you wanted it, a person on the street.

    If they're staring right at you, ask. For more natural, in-the-moment shots fire away, than ask. Sleeping bum on street, fire away and drop some change. :)
