Practice Street Photography

Last month, I tried street photography for the first time. I like taking candid photos of people in the street.

I was in Paris for most of August. No one seemed disturbed by my camera. Nonetheless, I struggled to point my lens at strangers in the street. It really challenged me to balance my confidence and my meekness. To stand in the street pointing a camera at a passer-by, you need to be bold. But you also need to seem unimposing and harmless.
