    Which character...

    I recently made my first 'street shoot' trip. It wasnt really that productive, because I had an appointment in this city and I had to find the place while looking for interesting street scenes. I think I shot two frames, including a hipshot. I was amazed by the silence of the shutter of the Canonet QL17 GIII, I dont think I heard it at all.

    I was wondering, what 'mode' do you set yourself to when you're out there in the streets? Do you dress differently, act differently, listen to music, put sunglasses on, dress like a 'cat burglar' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Qjym5uliDw , another street photographer commenting on this photographer's clothing which I thought was funny)

    Or do you hide your camera, or just keep it in your right hand?

    I didnt do anything special, I just shot my photos in my regular outfit. I walked with my camera in my right hand. Before the hipshot, I estimated the distance between me and the subject, got aware of my surroundings and went for it. No one noticed me at all, which felt pretty good

    Post, and show the world that this subforum isnt dead after all

    I just dress normally, but I always keep the camera out, I make it obvious I will be taking pictures, but just hang around so long I become a street sign
