    (getting consent)
    shoot then show them your shots, and if they approve of it, youre all good to shoot.

    (candid shot)
    after getting consent, linger around the scene, tumambay while pretending to be doing something when actually youre just waiting for the right moment to shoot.

    Could we all just be a plagiarist? copying and imitating style over style and calling it our own?

    Lol, if everyone asked permission to shoot, photographs would be really really boring.

    I was shooting in Ayala Ave last week, I shot a few frames of people staring out from bus windows. Do I have to board the bus and ask their permission?

    And yes, shoot lang ng shoot. That's the way to do it.

    Although I'm not a purist, I do also ask for permission from certain subjects. e.g. If I wanted to shoot posed portraits. In fact I probably do more of these kind of shots than candid ones. But saying "it's not ok" to not ask people's permission when shooting in public is just ridiculous IMO.

    Even if someone shot me this way, I'd be pissed, but what can I do, it's not illegal: Hehe.

    This was the shot that got me in trouble.
    The shop attendant got irked, called the cops, had her big friends hold me by the neck while waiting for the cops.

    Cops came sirens blaring and all, showed them the pic of underage girls buying beer from the shop.

    They let me go and they had a word with the lady of the store.

    ...and the drunk dude who wanted to show to his girlfriends how manly he was, swung his bag at me and wouldnt
    leave so i pretended to get mad too and the 2 lil girls drag him away.

    I was lucky he was only one guy, 2 or 3 of em then i wouldnt stick around.

    Wink How to approach people when you're really young.

    Well hello there. I'm quite new to the world of photography and the like. I just got my Canon 60D last Christmas, and hell I've been wanting to take shots of different things everyday.

    I've been reading the DPS website ever since December, everyday, checking out new posts and such.

    I'm just wondering....

    1) how to approach people when you want to take their picture
    2) how to not feel people are staring/thinking at/about you since you seem immature to actually take their photographs
    (btw, im 16.)
    3) how to take care of your lens and how to decide which lens you should buy
    4) if there are any photography workshops I can join in this summer. [ I'm not going to join if everyone is like 18 and above. Its just.. too lonely. )


    Thanks for reading a newbie's post. ;)

    Re: Street Photography Tips and Techniques



    I'm loving this thread!

    I just did my first street photography yesterday. I had an image in my mind of people going up the steel MMDA bridge but it didn't materialize. Instead, I just let my cam hang around my neck and started pressing the shutter without raising the camera to my face. Got some good shots but the feeling's great.

    Which got me thinking, what if we just use a wireless remote? Put the remote on your pocket, let your camera hang from your neck, then shoot away.
