Street Photographers

Did you know that there are (at least) two types of street photographers?

There is the one who is very upfront, bang in your face, Erik Kim / Bruce Gilden type of street photographer. Always on the hunt, never hiding he (or she) is taking your photo. Like our friend in this scene.


And then there is the other one, more relaxed type, with a little camera and tourist disguise, the one you never notice as he is taking shots from the hip. As you can see here, the up front type of street photographer needs to have quick reflexes and needs to be quick on his feet, while his buddy stays relaxed, being in peace with himself and the world.


And then there is of course yours truly, who chuckles silently as he takes his shots of the scene ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Are you the ‘look a different direction and pretend I was shooting something else’ or the shrug ‘oops, mea culpa’ type when you get caught?

    1. Probably more the first type ๐Ÿ™‚

      However, if the person approaches me and asks if I took a shot, I don’t deny it and show them the shot. And of course delete, if asked.

      Happened only once though ๐Ÿ™‚
