I Don't Do #Street

Personally, I don't really get street photography.  The beauty of people photography for me is the interaction of the camera and the person and more often than not a lot of street photography I see doesn't have that in it. There's a disconnect between the photographer and subject, something missing that with a look or more likely an acknowledgement can ignite an image.

Now if you are a Street Photographer, I applaud you. There's a technical requirement to make your photograph and for those that manage it, you should be pleased with your efforts. And I would say, it's not a discipline I have or appear to have the ability to master.

I don't get it, I can't do it, I can't focus on the subject as I don't have a connection with them allowing me (or the camera) to focus on them and I'm not great at zone focussing (see the included images for proof of that!).

However, if you are on the street, shooting, why not consider the implications of the photograph you are taking and give us the interaction of the person and the lens - something I believe a lot more difficult to achieve on a consistent basis for a lot of us.
