Sometimes I take pictures. Sometimes I do art. Sometimes I do both.

ai-negus asked:

Your pictures are nice... I have a question. When taking pictures of people on the street do you ask permission or just snap away because I want to take people but it seems long if they reject my advances

I answered:

No, I don’t ask for permission because it would take away the authenticity of a candid moment. As I’m passing someone I’ll just take it and keep walking. There’s a really big myth out there when it comes to Street Photography. People believe that if they take a picture of someone that person will confront them for it, but the reality is that about 90% percent of people won’t say a single thing, they’ll just look at you and keep walking. If a person ever does confront you or doesn’t want their picture taken then you just offer to delete it, it’s pretty simple. Most of the time the only people who really oppose or confront people about their picture being taken are those who have something to hide. So usually I’ll just take a picture and walk away, or give a compliment on a certain hat or object that makes them stand out and keep walking. Just don’t go hiding behind a car or being sneaky like a Paparazzi.. Lol
