Street photography is probably the most terrifying type of photography, because it’s the one area of the art form that risks getting punched in the face if done wrong. The trick is to either ask for someone’s permission to take a shot, therefore giving up the natural element of the shot, or else take a picture in a way that the subject has no idea what’s going on. I always go by way of the latter. So far I’ve had no bloody nose and it works just fine.
