I get the impression that street photographers who happen to be cute and female receive an enviable degree of license from those they're shooting. ;)

Great article!

Excellent article. I have a lot of the same reservations about street photography myself, I mentioned some of them here [link]

I'm not very sneaky taking photos of people on the street, I'm quite open about it. If they are close, engage them in conversation. If they aren't, I just snap away. I'm often caught and I wave and most the time they wave back. I've only had a couple of mildly unpleasant experiences.
I'd love to be able to use the 'cute' smile idea, but I don't have one of those. All I've got is the old guy smile. Nothing cute about that.

I'm a little bit confused by the "people" section. If you're not supposed to take pictures secretly but you're also not supposed to ask permission, what are you supposed to do? =P

im glad you found it as interesting (and helpful) as I did.

If you had read our tutorials (inside our gallery)

i read them, but still, it's a bit strange being on the street and trying not to be seen :P

practice makes perfect :)
If you try not to be seen, then you'll be seen :D
The secret here is to act naturally ;)
