i feel that street photography crosses the line and intrudes people’s privacy when we make them aware that we are photographing them. and it becomes worse if we focus on a single individual or a small group of people. being not too ambitious and make everyone feel that they are being photographed will do some good. and on should practice to compose a shot quickly and make the photograph in single frame something like”one shot one kill”. and if we really want to make various photographs in a particular street its better to make an acquaintance with someone in street and do it with permission and there support. recently i bought a remote for my canon 450D mainly for street photography and for photographing in sensitive places where people should not know that im photographing them. i will hang my camera in my neck mounted by wide angel lens and i will just approximately compose the shot and press my remote to release the trigger this really works for me.
