How She Faced Her Street Photography Fears

  1. Sharon says:

    I started shooting street last year. Love it and prefer to hit the streets with my camera these days.
    Great photos.

  2. Krista says:

    These are great!

  3. Amanda says:

    I love this SO much! I love street photography, but am too scared to do it. Tonight, I’m shooting my first public event for our city, and I’m so nervous! I’m scared people with kids will get mad at me for shooting their kids, especially. (I know I’ve gotten squidgy when I saw a photographer shooting my kids on a playground. I later found out he was a city photographer and they were updating their site. But it was so creepy to me!)
    Anyway, I love this article, well-timed!

    Love this! I would love to go and do it but I worry about people confronting me over taking their photo, what is the law with this? And same as Amanda above, I worry if I take a photo of a child, I know I wouldn’t like it if someone done the same of my children, or of me as well

    Thank you so much for sharing this insightful and inspiring article. My photographer friend and I met in our state capital for a bit of shooting and walking and chatting. It certainly empowered me to be photographing together (I would have felt extremely self-conscious otherwise). The morning we spent completely opened my eyes to light and beauty and vision wherever we might be, particularly in town/city areas. Below is a link for the blog post I did from our morning. Hope you enjoy and thanks again, Liz

  6. I totally identify with this feeling! I think I’m still struggling with it but now that my friends and family know I’ve taken an interest in photography they are more welcoming of the camera meaning I feel more comfortable having it out in social settings. I’ve noticed because of this I am getting more comfortable having it out and around strangers as well.

    OMG I loved reading this, I am an aspiring photographer trying to expand my skill and learn more about it and shoot better photos, I have done the occasion wedding but this story was inspiring because I think I too have a bit of street photography fear. Looking forward to reading more.

    I was on Pinterest looking up photojournalism and I saw how she faced her street photography photo. I said to myself this is right up my alley. I’m so happy I’m not alone out there with the same problem. I have taken some street photography but not enough to feel comfortable. It’s such an issue I’m trying to conquer. I fight with myself every time I do it lol. Just like you I worry people will get offended if I took their photo or think I’m freak. Which I shouldn’t care if that’s what they think. I’m truly just doing what I love. Sometimes people may not get it or understand that. I need to spread my wings. I don’t know you but I’m proud of you because it takes guts to be a true photographer. I’m so glad you wrote this article. It helped a lot. Thank you!
