    I agree, although he doesn't look much fun to me!

    He's in Hackney Wick, right in the shadow of the Olympic stadium, whilst the snapper is in achingly trendy Shoreditch, right by Brick Lane.

    A couple of candid shots the restaurant last night...





    It was in a cellar - so low light & high ISO (& I don't like flash in such situations) so these were the only 2 that came out.

    I very rarely shoot any street photography these days, but I do have a project planned for the summer. Of what I've shot in the streets before, this is my favourite:

    Do you think street artist are in the street photography genre? I don't believe they are as they are there to be observed and/or photographed, especially if you give them money.

    The artists in the last two shots are members of bands playing around Durham in the "Streets of Brass" festival. It's a two week event that is county wide, not just in the city. As such they are not buskers, it's street performance which they are paid to do. I can't think of anything more suitable for street photography. When I shoot buskers, which I do fairly often, I always chuck some money in the cap and ask if it's ok to photograph them, and I would still regard this as street photography. I've never come across a definitive definition of what street photography is, it means different things to different people.

    It does mean different things to different people and who am I to define a set of rules for anyone else's photography although we will have to agree to differ as I am with Eric Kim on this one.

    That's an excellent link, which I enjoyed reading. However the author suggests both getting closer and shooting from a tall building. It's all very subjective, as are the aesthetics of the final image. I think most photographers agree to differ on most things. The most important thing is to enjoy being out with a camera, IMHO.

    Getting out there and shooting is definitely key. Street photography is something I rarely attempt (largely because I don't enjoy the physical action of taking photos of people). I can, however, admire the work of others**. I just find the process strangely intrusive, rather uncomfortable, and, with the internet, far too revealing**.


    ** Vivian Meyer is a fascinating subject. With her work, it's as much about the view of the finders / curators as it is about her photos; after all, she didn't edit anything, she didn't publish anything, she shot purely for the moment, it seems...
    ***ETA: And possibly over-exposed. *Everyone* is a "street photographer" now, it seems.

    I dont usually take street performers or count them as street photography but I did like this one, probably due to the interaction rather than usual observation from a distance.

    I don't normally do much street photography but the other weekend I decided to give it a go. To try not to look too conspicuous I took my Lumix GX1, I had it strung over my neck, set at 14mm and auto focus. The shutter release was pressed using my thumb so as not to draw attention. Below are my two favourite results.

    Managed to get this really quick shot as we were wandering through Glasgow town centre on Sunday. I didn't realise until I looked at it today that there was some bugger standing behind him and it's quite a task to try to Shop him out
