Street photography tips

Get comfortable with:

So the point of street photography is that you have to go somewhere, where people walk by.
I know many people who feeling akward, when they point the camera on people that they dont know.
Always keep in mind, that you dont want to be that creepy person that points a camera with
a 400mm lense on people.
If you want to shoot strangers then try to first speak with them. Do a bit of small talk, so you both feel comfortable when you take the shot.
Dont just rush in and take a suprise snap! That´s not hot it works!
