did you ever get rejected by those passer by or they request you to delete the picture you taken?

So far... no... But keep an open mind, if people feel uncomfortable or rejected you shooting at them, just smile, delete their pic and walk away.

It is challenging to take people you don't know. If they tell you nicely, you can simply delete it in today's digital technology. Show him/her if he/she still not satisfied.

Those that turn aggressive are difficult to deal. A tele lens would be handy. I generally avoid direct shoot.

TS, I never get rejected. Because I'm too shy to ask for permission. If you do get to come across people who ask you to delete. Just delete. Although, ***by right, the photos, once taken, are already our property***, I don't think it's worth the risk getting into something nasty. Learn the art of ninjutsu. That's your best weapon.

Smile and walk away. If they come after you, start running. :bsmilie:

Well..thats why the 70-200 F2.8 can become very handy here. If they ask you to delete.. just do it lo..if not things can get ugly.
it sure take some courage to shoot people you dontknow.

Just go shoot, when they look at you just smile. So far everyone had been friendly when I smile at them. I shoot with an 11-16

Maybe she is not happy that you did not shoot a pic of her?

Nice shot of old man!
Full-bodied character - makes you wonder where he's been and done.
