    I don't really see a point in the flash except that its rather irritating.
    There are so many good street photos done w/o it.

    I get a good laugh looking at his style though. So rude and very paparazzi in style (the rude engagements; the don't care in your face so long as I get the shot attitude)

    Thank you for sharing; even it has been posted before. To me, it is a question of self belief on what one wants to do. Street photography can come in various forms - and the 2 videos depicted 2 styles. I am sure we have plenty of opportunities to do that in Sgp, in various locations. I have not seen video of this sort of a Sgp photographer followed by a videographer to document his/her work. I wonder whether there is, but that I am not aware of.

    i think the issue here is your mentality. what are you here to capture? why do you have guilt? why should you have guilt? are you doing something wrong? some people use "street photography" as an excuse to shoot random pretty girls on the street, from what i see.. their defense is "it's a public area mar". well, of course no law says that you can't.. sooner or later the law of the street will come crashing down.

    if what you are doing is pure, lose your guilt, lose your fear. just shoot. shoot like you aren't shooting people. from my london experience of street shooting, if you don't act guilty, people won't look at you. the exception are people who are extremely camera shy, then those you will be able to judge by body language and expression from a mile away. if you encounter a situation where people are not happy, just explain yourself calmly, and show them the photograph, delete it if needed. shoving laws in others' faces will not help any matters in a heated situation.

    Bruce Gilden's style of photography gets him the results for sure..... Kudos for his bravado but not my cup of tea

    But Much rather do it THIS way

I'm pretty sure that you would be brutally assaulted by bogans in Aus if u attempt the same feat, and especially if u r small and asian. I'm also inclined to believe that u would ve the same response fr Singaporeans as Bruce's experience in NY, if u're white and as tank as Arnold. It's human nature for most to confront someone that he or she can handle..and unfortunately, bully.

    So don't be critical of your own people. U know the kiasuism that the media portray us as? U should see what happen on boxing day in Melb, once Myers open their door. Some reccee the place, and some hide the desired items at funny places so that they could buy it on discounted price (which is ptless, as most of the items re marked up for X'mas). People queue way before Myers' opening hrs. I can never forget what I saw on the morning TV in 2004's boxing day- the shoppers running over an old woman who tripped over by her walking aid. Not really running over her but running passing her and ignoring the poor lady. A pretty disgusting sight.
    It's good to highlight the bad attributes of ourselves and try to get rid of it to make ourselves more civilised and gracious. One thing that I'm proud of Sgs is that we are able to see atypical behaviour of foreigners as cultural difference and respect them, but for some caucasians (Europeans, Americans - they are more receptive than the rest, and Aussies) that I know - stuffs that u do and they don't are considered as barbaric or primitive. I guess that's highlighted in IP-man2 (probably based on Donnie's and Sammuel's experiences) and the early days of swimming (front crawl was barbaric and breast stroke was the proper stroke, wiki it..pretty interesting). I have come across people telling me that they can't understand how I could eat the "disgusting" squid or calamari, and how can I eat meat with bones in it. Those who share similar experiences probably know which group I'm referring to.

    So do give Singaporeans more credits. We are behaving pretty well, even though we could do away with some arrogance, inclinations towards caucasians and discriminating our own people, and we could be more receptive.
