    wow,
    I am too afraid to take photos from "strangers" when they are like one breath far away.

    I wanna start with my new zoom lense to take some street-photos. 200mm should be perfect for that - and I think that no one will even notice my shadow.. hehe

    but thanks for sharing that link vinc

    careful, they might think you're some kind of voyeur with the zoom lens

    nice link, some good tips. i suppose it's easier said than done but he is a pro after all. I highly recommend one of his books titled Cape Light. Some nice compositions and simple ideas.

    And you think it's better when I jump in front of them and take some photos? haha
    I took yesterday some street photos and I didn't feel comfortable because people looked at me with the face: "wtf are you doing?". But no one said anything...

    Wear a large coat, a hat and maybe some dark glasses. Never take long paces, just shuffle from area to area. If you must talk talk in single syllables and as gruffly as possible. Make sure you have your camera showing [around your neck] at all times. Maybe carry a notebook also.

    Time how long it is until the police arrive.

    And find yourself a lady that goes by 'Natasha' and speaks broken English with a Eastern European accent, dropping articles as she goes.

    Maybe Natanya*, or Svetlana.

    But not Olga... the name Olga does not carry with it an air of danger or anything of the sort.

    About the video, if someone wearing all black came up to me with a camera and started prancing about declaring that he was now 'invisible' I'd just ignore him and hope he goes away. His little 'invisible' trick does seem to work, but maybe not for the reason he thinks it does.


    *I don't even know if [Na]Tanya is an Eastern name, but it sounds close enough to make do. I only know two or three others and I want to save them for later.

    SO true. haha, his ears made him look like an overgrown pixie. i was genuinely amazed at the way people just let him do it tho. whenever i do, i too get the 'wtf' look

    Dress like a special-forces ninja pixie.

    Then you too will get away with taking photos right in people's faces.

    btw: What says the law? Am I allowed to take photos for my private use from any person? (not matter if they want it or not?)
    - or can passants force me to delete photos from my camera?
