I love the journalistic aspect of street photography — I live in the suburbs so “street” means something else here1 — but I always feel weird pointing my camera at strangers on the street. I don’t think I have the confidence for that. I always think the Princeton police will show up to arrest “that creepy black guy with the camera”.
I guess I have to overcome my discomfort in pointing the camera at a person. I’ll start practising on my family first.
- Princeton is the nearest town that offers a “downtown” and an opportunity for street photography. Most towns around here have no town centre. ↩
