It's important to establish rapport with them as well for some would not be so keen to be photographed. My policy is simple. Anyone who upon seeing you aiming the camera lens shows the slightest hesitance, not worth my time.
Follow the SW,SW, SW, NEXT principle! Some Will, Some Won't, So What? Next!
Some street photographers adopt the stealth Approach. It works as well but somewhat clandestine. I prefer to do my photo shoots upfront.You have peace of mind this way.
Here are some of my shots.
This boy was cute! Everytime I pointed my camera at him, those two fingers would go up automatically! Hahahahaha/ Everytime! Is it now an in grown reflex in modern kids to show that 'peace' sign?
A cute little Indian boy with his dad was at the market too. He has those big round eyes full of curiosity looking at this Atok photographer! Hehehehe.
That's it for now. More photos later. Insya Allah.
