Street photography: making discoveries

IMG_20171231_151903Street photography can be at times, fickle. Some days the ‘take’ yields a lot of pleasing photos, while other days,  just one or none. The key differences might be chances taken, and maybe just luck. But, the problem is, secretly photographing people who don’t want their photo taken.












It does happen at least to me. A friend of mine who is clearly foreign had no problems, whereas I look like a local. A solution when I used my smartphone was, to use the remote feature on my earphones. That’s right, I blend right in holding my smartphone out the front (as if I were taking a selfie), aim and fire away!

  1. Great series of street photos – thanks for sharing! Marcus

  2. Love that stairwell shot.

  3. Great idea of pretending to take selfies! I have also faced with the same difficulties as you experienced. People tend to ease up more when tourists take photo of them.
