    After reading through the many post in this thread, maybe we should change that to 'there's a fine line between being a street photographer and being a voyeur".

    And subtitle it "And that line is up to each individual street photographer to seek out for themselves..."

    I would change that to read '... to seek out for themselves at their own risk.'

    The general public can't understand why anybody in their right mind who isn't a pervert would want to take pictures of people they don't know.

    That is my experience also. Especially if a stranger, the subject "needs to know" that there is something photogenic happening before they become agreeable. Othereise, they are likely to be suspicious and maybe hostile.

    A disquieting or scandalous subject does not make a good photograph. And if you must use them..........................

    It does not not make a good photograph.

    ...your name might be Weegee or Arbus.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Answer me this, then. Did Arbus ASK the marginalised if she could take there picture or did she try and snap away with no care or respect?

    Big difference...

    I was responding to what Martin implied by saying, "And if you must use them..........................", which I took to mean, if completed, "you aren't much of a photographer".
    Martin did not discern between asking and not asking.

    EDIT: Change to "I was responding to what I believe Martin implied..."
