I have always been intrigued by street photography. It was not until I bought my first camera, that I started to shoot people going about their daily routine. These days, so many photographers gear up and hit the streets to capture a daily slice of life.
Many street shooters believe in NO interaction with the subjects. I mix it up a bit and sometimes I may give some eye contact, a nod or even have a chat before taking the photos. It all depends on the person and the surroundings.
The #1 thing with street shooting is you have to drop your fear of shooting people in public. Just take a stroll, camera in hand, and don’t be afraid to capture the world around you.
I am no expert on the street, far from it, but if you want to shoot and capture life as it happens all you have to do is “DO IT”. If the is something that you want to do, shoot every day and every day push yourself further and further until your courage and confidence are up. I have not had any bad experiences and I have shot in the USA and many other countries.
Confidence is key!
