For whatever reason, Monday’s posts are the most difficult. It’s the one where I have to get the creative juices flowing. Quite often, I’m thrashing around trying to find something to write about.
I’m watching a youtube clip about street photography, Fan Ho, Nan Goldin, Martin Parr – names that I’ve never heard of, but the brief clips and shots Jamie Windsor the presenter talks about the ethics of street photography.
It was very interesting to see the clip why you shouldn’t do street photography. Now. Street photography really appeals to me as a genre. I’m not sure why as I am really quite nervous about practicing it. How should you do it? It seems to me that it is not unreasonable to stop someone and ask if it is OK to take their picture. I did that with a shop keeper a few months ago. He was quite happy – and if they aren’t then just don’t take the picture.
I need to try this.
