Not a good way. Good street photography requires that you are a participant of the event/place. Shooting from a distance makes you an observer, or worse, a voyeur.Originally posted by spilot
Hi All again,
About not being seen...
How about this :
I go buy that SIGMA 50-500mm APO lens, then go hide somewhere and blast em from half a mile away?
Too much distortion. A 20mm or so wide angle at around f/5.6 or 8 should do the trick nicely.Originally posted by spilot
... oh goodness me no ! A voyeur !
but hmmmm.... ( just dismissed that thought )
Ok, point taken, I should try then. How about a 180 degree fisheye - in sucks in the surrounding without having to point at subject... no?
Go for the pure 50mm if you want a 50, coz @ f/1.8 or 1.4, it's going to be a lot faster. But a 20mm will allow you to go close, squeeze of a couple of shots and get everything in without having to be that accurate in aiming. That's the idea behind using wides.Originally posted by Klause
Use 50mm best. Or better.. macro lense.
