  1. I want to take pictures like this, since you get lots of people like this on the streets. But, I am afraid that these guys might shout, so I refrain from taking such pics. Have you faced situations like that?

    well, the secret to get portrait and lifestyle photographs is “spend time”. don’t just take out your camera and start shooting immediately. instead, take a good look of the surrounding, understand their mood and wait. you can go and talk. understand their expressions. the best way to get good candid shot is, take your camera and be there until they ignore you. then start taking pictures. But always respect others’ privacy. and till now, i haven’t faced any bad situations.

    Thats a very good advice..I usually ask people for their permission before taking their pictures and usually they agree..

    We don’t need to go and ask for permission verbally every time. Expressions can also give the permissions. But we need time and experience to understand that.
