Street in Liverpool and St Nazaire

And actually in Honfleur as well. Street photography, wherever it is, can be great fun to do. Gathering interesting and/or quirky pictures of people is great, and by and large the subjects tend to be quite happy about it. There are plenty of books on the subject of Street (Reportage, Photojournalism) but in the end, getting out there and having a go is the way forward.

I confess that at first it was a bit daunting. How would people react? My theory is that two things are necessary - confidence and efficiency. Looking like we know how to operate our camera kit slickly is a good start, doing it confidently rather than being shy and consequently a bit shifty and of course the secret weapon - a smile. A confident, friendly smile goes a long way towards reassuring the subjects.

So, some street images from my early attempts, shot in Liverpool, St Nazaire and Honfleur. Camera was the Pentax *istDS and the lens nthe SMC Pentax-DA 16-45mm f/4.
