What is it that makes some street photographers (and wannabees) want to be invisible ? The thought would never have struck me, had I not come across this subject so regularly in articles and blogs lately. I don’t want to be invisible and it wouldn’t improve my photographs either, I think. If it is the fear of people reacting, well, that depends for the greater part on how you behave yourself. Even if you know you’re not doing anything wrong, does your body language show that your intentions are o.k.? Make sure you are self confident. Using long lenses and shooting from the hip is sneaky and makes you feel uneasy. In my book it’s a big nono.
Sorry, but you will run into the occasional paranoid nut every now and then. Be prepared. Invisibility is no part of that, I’m afraid.
