    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.

    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

    Yours is a fabulous project with some lovely results, the F3 is ideal as a waist level camera, do you leave the top open, or have some mask or shade around the focus screen?

    Thanks Bateleur,
    I just remove the prism and hold it my right hand. I think it might look like I am fixing something. The wagons are usually dark enough to let me view the image without shade. I know the distance, so no need to focus.

    Get a twin lens reflex camera which most people today don't recognize. It can be used facing to the side.
    Another choice is a Robot which is a 35 mm camera with a viewfinder built into one end so it can be aimed 90 deg. from where you are facing.

    I liked all the shots.

    They are one of the best examples I've seen in a while of what I have seen referred to as the "naval eye view of the world".

    They bring home to me how important "viewpoint" can be to photography.

    Yes, many of the photos were made at navel level. I think i might upload these pictures to APUG.

    I posted them because I wanted to show that you sometimes are not noticed although you sit only a couple of meters from the one you photograph. Strange, but true. Bruce Gilden says something similar in the video above.
