Is it generally ok to ask people on the streets to take posed pictures? Have you guys asked before?

Will be travelling, was wonder if people in Japan are receptive to having their photos taken?

Please try a search for "street photography". You'll find lots of information.

If you're looking for street protraits, you can try a search with the correct spelling.

Depends on the country actually, not sure about a Japan but in Thailand if you ask them and be friendly about it, they usually will agree.

You can refer to the street and candid section in this forum to check out. Yes u can ask them to pose for you. Depends on the aims you are getting to achieve. I never ask them for posing before, i love to take them unaware, spontaneous.

Japanese are generally fine the last i went Hokkaido. But there will definitely be folks who gets irritated

most of the time after the shot, if they look at you, just give them a smile and say thank you . . . ;)

most people won't mind their photos being taken actually.

Hi Bro Rashkae,
Is it done on purpose or have you got it wrong also?;)
Cheers.

Japanese are very friendly.. at least those in Hokkaido. Once I was trying to capture a group of old workers chopping wood naturally, I was caught by them and.... they all posed for me. :D
