Street Photography: Do’s and Donts Good judgment and goodmanners; be polite to who youcould be potentially shooting. Look for things, people, andplaces that interest you; Life ishappening all around you, socapture the range of emotionsand expressions that go alongwith it. Make sure your ready for anypicture opportunity; you may misssomething amazing if yourplaying with your camera.Don’tsDo’s Act suspicious; people wontwant you taking their photo ifyou dont ask. Sneak up/stalk;whoever/whatever you couldpotentially capture wont likeit if you shove the camera intheir face. Obsess over your camera.
