    Seriously, what little of this I do I REALLY like my Yashica TLR. Some don't recognize it as a camera, those who do mostly think it's a very cool thing, and with the WLF I can often photograph people who have no clue I'm doing it. Those that do don't seem to care.
    I like TLRs too Roger because they're quiet and none threatening because you're looking down into the viewfinder and not directly at people you can also point the camera sideways in the opposite direction to the way you are faced and shoot, or even at arms length above your head.

    I'm thinking everyone is laughing in this video because he has a video camera stuck behind the RF viewfinder of the Leica, piggy-back style, as if the video camera is humping the Leica.

    It is funny, though. Thanks for sharing.

    I am doing a project where I photograph people in the subway. I love to record their expressions and faces. The camera is a Nikon F3 from which I remove the prism, so that it becomes a waist viewfinder camera. People often do not notice me, even though I sit right across the aisle.

    Lately, though, I have found those photos more interesting where I am noticed and people accept that I photograph them.

    Have a look at my results, if you like

    While not my primary photographic interest - that would be either landscape, fine art or industrial work - I do shoot a small amount of "street photography." I have yet to find a non-compliant or aggressive subject. My modus operandi? 1). I dress to blend in: blue jeans or khaki chinos with neutral colors; 2). I keep the equipment simple: an M6 with either a 35mm or 50mm lens - never anything longer; 3). If my "subject" engages in conversation, I always explain WHY I photographed her/him/them (i.e. what I found visually interesting, etc). This I do AFTER I have made my photograph(s) - I do not like posed pictures; and 4). I ALWAYS thank the party or parties involved, either with a nod of the head, a smile or a simple "thank you."
    The keys, in my view: 1) Comportment; and 2) My M6s (most see these as toys and do not find them "aggressive" in the same way as SLRs and DSLRs seem to be).

    Dang, those are quite good! That's some good work, my friend. I didn't even realize you could do that to a Nikon. Great idea!

    Thanks! The prism is just removed briefly, otherwise stuff would fall out of the camera. The image in the viewfinder is inverted, but you quickly get used to that.

    Great photos Erik! I used to have an F3 and remove the prism just like you to take incognito photos when I was in bars with friends.

    Avoid people with guns, knives and gang tattoos. A smile and thumbs up after the shot. The most material is usually in an area of a lot of activity and most people are busy with their own stuff. I don't do too much street photography but have done enough to be comfortable with it. Medium format both waist level and eye level; 50mm and longer lenses.

    Im not sure if anyone has mentioned it, but here is another example of a very confrontational photographer, Bruce Gilden. He's a Magnum photographer as well, and as he says it, "I have no ethics". LOL interesting watch.
