    I dedicated blog for this topic

    I've found this forum by accident. Opinions expressed here are extremely interesting.
    I’ve just started blog (Candid Street Photo) that is almost solely dedicated to this topic.

    To talk about "Rules" of street photography as like talking about the "Rules" for pickpockets, the only rule is don't get caught, because once your subject is aware of your presence and start posing you've blown it.

    I quite like Streuli's photos. They lie somewhere between the typological (think bechers) and the iconic. To compare Streuli to a "street" photographer like Frank, Winogrand, Friedlander etc. could be an interesting exercise in understanding how differences in artistic strategies shape not only the individual's work but that aspect of "modernity" or timeliness intrinsic to it. But to judge Streuli's work solely on the tenets of a mode of photography whose period of relevance ended thirty years ago is an exercise in futility.

    Struelli's photos all look as if they were shot from far off, using a tele lens. Everything looks kind of flat.

    As a matter of interest the work of Struelli is included in an exhibition "The Adventure of Reality" at the Kunsthall in Rotterdam (Netherlands)!

    These are not street photography just as shooting a cat off your back fence is not hunting and 2minute noodles is not cooking. What saddened me were the portraits, a terrific opportunity wasted, they conveyed nothing of the subject and even in terms of a style, none was evident. I can still love images that can be regarded as clinical but these were not even that. I searched the site for any reference to street and I'm pleased to report that the site made no such reference.

    But its all OK, panic is over ...they are not street photographs. OP you said you don't do street photography I believe you ...

    Early on, I would shy away from getting "too close" to people. Now if I have a main subject(s) in my frame, my goal is to get close enough to them so that they occupy 1/3 to 1/2 of the frame (with a 28mm lens).

    The more you make yourself move out of your comfort zone and get closer to people when doing street photography, the sooner you will get past your nerves and become comfortable getting close to your subjects - and the sooner you will start to create rewarding images.

    Anyone can make street photos from a "safe" distance - and they will end up with mundane images with no clear subject and no visual impact. Commit to getting close and overcoming your nerves - the rewards are well worth the effort.

    I agree to getting up close and personal, generally people are open to interaction even in public spaces and barriers are often of our own making, though naturally there are boundaries and respect for "our subject".
