    Lol! Complete joke or partial truth?

    Just did some street photography with my newly squired yashika44LM it's safe to say mine is not jammed, and all my subjects were fascinated by the camera and let me take their candids on the NYC streets and a Johnny Rockets restaurant including a few staff who WANTED to be in the picture, I think I'm just really approachable and friendly and that helps.

    Of course I took them on 1966 expired Verichrome Pan so might not have come out LOL

    "There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."

    Here's the thing - I think that NYC is very much one of the very few places in the world where street photography will not even batter an eye lid. There is something about that place that people just don't seem to care about little things like this.

    Have you been here much?

    Not always the case, but I think as an Actor I can be aware of my facial expressions and persona, and I always try to put forth the real me, which is a very excited about photography type or person, and use that excitement in that moment to make it ok and not get people upset. I think that's why online I seem like such a dick, because my personality never comes through in my text.

    I've certainly seen people's cameras get destroyed in NY by someone who didn't like their picture taken.

    Also, being aware of PEOPLE... there's a thing about TLR's and WLF type cameras that bother people less... something about looking down instead of AT them, seems to lessen their reactions and you get a more natural look as well. I think that the OP should probably learn to use a TLR instead of a leica and perhaps he won't be viewed as such a creep

    I've often wanted to take shots of children when out shooting but have been put off by the risk of being labeled a 'pervert'.....

    It never used to be like this - before the whole mass hysteria of every male photographer being viewed by the general public as a potential pedophile if they so much as point a camera in the general direction of any child. (Or a terrorist if they try and shoot architecture!)

    I would like to know from any female photographers out there if they have had any problems with photographing children, or is this just a male thing?

    That's interesting to know.

    I went to NYC in 96 - it was probably the highlight of my stateside travels back then. I loved the city. I loved the people. I loved that I was in a laundromat and people started to talk to me. I loved that I was wearing a T-shirt that someone found (mildly) offensive and she challenged me about it.

    But, I suppose, back then I didn't care too much about street photography, so it wasn't something I did.

    I guess I have taken my recent cues and views from seeing clips on the likes of Meyerwitz and Gilden and what a guy I know locally did when he was over there a few years ago.

    Isn't that an oxymoron?

    no it isn't ... it means after he took their candids they didn't go up to him
    and threaten him, or cause him trouble.

    years ago i used to take candids at late night eateries in and around the boston area ..
    drunks, cabbies, drunk cabbies, off duty cops & revelers between 1am and 4am ..
    most people knew who i was and what i was up to, the owners didn't care and they looked out for my safety
    when the occasional violent drunk saw my camera pointed in his direction and approached me.

    in other words, if the people didn't LET him take their CANDIDS they would have approached him ( as the occasional drunk approached me )
    grabbed his camera threatened to smash it on his head, or the ground, and then drag him someplace to hit him ...

    Sorry, I misunderstood.

    I thought he asked their permission before taking the picture, thus making it non-candid.

    From: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candid_photography

    "A candid photograph is a photograph that is captured without creating a posed appearance. This is achieved by avoiding prior preparation of the subject and by either surprising the subject or by not distracting the subject during the process of taking photos. Thus, the candid character of a photo is regardless of the subject's knowledge or consent as to the fact that photos are being taken, and regardless of the subject's permission for subsequent usage such as distribution, but related to the apparent absence of posing. It is distinguished from making secret photography by the photographer usually remaining discernible to the public and not wearing cover."


    So are we actually talking about SECRET photography and not CANDID photography?
