    1) Ask the person whom you really wanted to shoot for permission before shooting at him/her.
    2) Point the camera in a general direction and when anyone who walked pass are caught in the camera, then it was he's or her problem.
    3) Shoot already, then walked away quickly.
    4) If there are many people in the area, just shoot and no one will mind... because whoever being caught in the camera is just part of the big picture...

    this has been discussed before. you can always do a search. the other thread containing tips on street photography will get u there quicker than getting new opinions and tips.

    it's inside.. whatever bro rhino123 mentioned... it was discussed. btw, instead of starting a new thread, you could have expended that one and asked in there. it's more relevant than you think it is.

    hi AkemiOrge... i just answer straight to the point...
    "just take life with a pinch of salt... sometimes you do not get good pictures without being scolded at... just move on to the next subject when in doubt"
    in street photography... you will need a handful of salt...

    There's always something to smile about by Silvialite, on Flickr

    Shot with my beercan about 30m away from subject.

    Just shoot and walk away. Sometimes you'll be pleasantly surprised...

    I find that using a compact camera yields better results for me as it's not as obvious as an SLR.

    without getting scolded at, you'd prob have a better chance doing it stealthily. and it means going the 'telephoto' way nice compact zoom lenses like the 70-300 or 100-400(canon) should suffice.

    Just did a walkabout today with my rf. 40mm and took some pictures right in front of my subjects. they may look like they will turn away, but they would generally not turn hostile.
