Red Rider

ISO1600 90mm f/5.6 1/50sec

Now that spring has arrived and the city is coming to life, its probably safe to say I may be posting more mini series of street shots in the upcoming months. This post is a mixture of a new shot above, and a few street shots from yesterday that didn’t really fit into the story the rest were telling. So I now present the missing pics from yesterdays wonderings.

  1. Do you ask to take their photo?
    Love your work πŸ™‚

    • Hey Ninali! Typically I do not ask to take their photo, I like to catch natural moments. But most often make eye contact at some point and give a sincere smile. Thanks for the kind words πŸ™‚

      • Yeah, but do they know you are publishing their photos? Couldn’t this get you in a heap of trouble?

        • Hey Carissa! If they ask I do let them know it may be published. And no it cant get us in trouble to publish them, being its more editorial and journalistic. However if I ever receive a complaint I will have no issue with taking the picture down. Its nothing I worry about, Im out to make people look good, never the other way around. Thanks for the great question πŸ™‚

  2. as always you capture life living life

  3. I agree with you. I am starting to take more street photographs myself. I find the most inestering ones are of people unaware of being photographed. The majority really don’t care. If someone comes up to me to ask why I was taking their picture I tell them and they are fine with it. Photography is a hobby to me so I don’t sell anything. I also carry a photo release form in my camera bag.

    Learning a lot from you.


    • I dont carry releases with me, but if people ask I do tell them about the site. Sincerity and honesty will get you a long ways when it comes to street photography. I’ve actually seen some of the past people I’ve shot walking around town and we exchanged smiles and waves. Its really fun πŸ™‚ Thanks for the kind words Francine!

  5. love3 the old boy in the Dog Pit

  6. Even though i’m not very good at street photography, I enjoy it a lot. You did a great job there, for me the best one of these is the 2nd one. Great framing and colours.

  7. I enjoy the lines in the top pic – good one

  8. Love the cafe shot – did he know you were taking a picture? Do you ask permission in these cases?

    • I had a few when he wasn’t looking, but kept shooting when he looked over at me. I did not ask permission but exchanged smiles afterwards. Sometimes it makes a better pic if you get caught while shooting πŸ™‚ Thanks Lutz

  9. Wow! These are all sooooooooo good! You’re really inspiring me to get out and do some street photography.

    Great photographs, hope I can improve to your level.

    • I appreciate that. To tell you the truth, the only reason I am where I am (whatever that may be) with my photography is cause Im out shooting hundreds of pics every single day. For every good shot I have 20 bad shots. I guess I’m just persistent πŸ˜‰ Thanks again

  11. Excellent, revealing portraits. You’ve captured the moods of those people very nicely!
