5 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Ask For Permission When Shooting Street Photography

       A photographer that I follow on face book posted an article on his blog about if you should ask for permission before taking pictures on the street.  I think he makes some interesting argument.  (I love #1 the best)

About John-Roy Photography

Photography is the greatest form of self expression. It communicates with my soul; a kind of a “catharsis scream”. This offers me a mental release from my professional career. After using my right brain all day, it is nice to use my left brain to create something meaningful. This brings a yin and yang to my life. When I pick up my camera after work, I prefer to shoot inanimate objects. Using light, shadows and selective focus, I am attempting to give the objects a life force; allowing them to tell a story. Because of this, I sometimes tend to become lost in my perception of light and shadows. It allows me to constantly visualize different angles and perspectives of spaces and even people around me. When I photograph people, I am drawn to capturing them in communal areas. I usually try and catch people off guard to create a pensive state of being which is a window into their souls. You would be surprised how much people tend to let their guard down and become relaxed when they think no one is watching. (Ever notice how differently children behave when they know they are being watched?) I’ve come to this place of artistic expression after experimenting with several other approaches to photography. I finally listened to an art director and a close friend of mine and I redirected my work to reflect my own true artistic expression.

    Hi John-Roy
    Great link!
    I was a little confused because it looks as if you didn't post anything under this post. Maybe you can also post the link for others like me who are a little slow on the uptake?

    Hope you are well!

  2. Thanks Kittty! I just fixed it
