    Not necessarily. Personally I have no interest in photographing kids not related to me. But the prevailing paranoia surrounding 'the stranger' near kids just doesn't make it worth bothering to photograph anywhere that there might be kids. Which is a shame because, apart from Mum and Dad's proud snaps of Junior, there will probably be a large hole in the photographic record for future generations where children are concerned. No photographs of school plays/concerts, no photographs of children's sports, no photographs of children just playing in the street and being children.

    But I guess you can just ignore people - that'll learn 'em!
    Of course, when the thread is almost exactly two lines down from the one you started... well, then I just do it to be a smart ass. Do you mind?

    Yeah, I guess it's the smart-ass thing that bothers me. Especially when you intimate we have less of an attention span than a hamster on crystal meth. If you feel the need to point out another thread then do so, but leave the insults out.

    I guess I'm feeling sensitive today.

    I too avoid photographing people. Too many bad experiences, even one lately and I wasn't even shooting people. I prefer the wilderness, or streets well after dark when nobodys around.

    Street Photography

    Kids. Just isn't worth the hassle.

    Couldn't agree more. I have virtually given up street photography because of the increasing number of suspicious people about. I used to enjoy candid photography in the 70s but its just not worth the risk any more.

    I do enjoy photographing street performers especially during the Edinburgh Festival. I always make the effort to go up to Edinburgh for a few days during festival time. Many performers ask the audience for one pound after a show. I usually slip five pounds in to show my appreciation.

    We all have those days. But I guess you were feeling a bit sensitive - the comment was not directed at you.

    Well, I was talking to you.

    a) I don't think that comparing one's attnetion span to a rodent on drugs is all that insulting, especially since it was meant to be humorous.
    b) I know you're enthusiastic, and I don't care how many threads there are on the same topic - its just you would actually learn more, and get more answers to a serious question if you just took a breath before hitting the "submit" button and noticed that a big huge thread, with some really experienced folks contributing exists already.

    Usually I don't bother with these kinds of posts. But I like Marko and his (sometimes overt) enthusiasm, so I thought I'd point this out to him. Most of the people who just posted a thoughtful response on a subject will probably ignore your question or simply don't have the time and effort to repeat themselves. Its no skin off my back - you will simply get more out of this place if you bother to look first. And this was an extreme example... the thread was literally three or four posts below this one!
    Marko - take a breath, think it over again, then post. I think you will find you will get better results that way.

    Peter.

    If you're bashful about shooting it, it isn't Street Photography

    What is wrong shooting homeless, sick ederly, or people with life struggling problems. It is some logic behind modern image culture mixed with manipulations and misinformation just anywhere, above, on, and under the earth. Money matter. And what is powerty? Powerty is other side of beeing satisied with life... (I think we talk about Western world and its streets).

    The problem can arise not from photographer but from one that use the photographs, for which purpose he use it and how.
    For all of that reasons I do not like to picture kids on street just because I do not want to melt their naïve and honesty with other “people”. I wish they never became part of todays world, but to build the world as they are while kids. Then I will photograph and smiling kids on streets.

    Because unless it is done to aid the homeless and disenfranchised, or as a photojournalist to highlight their plight, it can be seen as exploitation.
