Eric Kim tells us why it’s okay to be “aggressive” as a street photographer and get our best shots
Street photography is certainly one of the most engaging genres to get into, but it also comes with some pretty significant caveats. Among them are the ethical considerations when it comes to taking photos of people on the streets, often without consent. The rules differ in every city, state, or country, but the general consensus says there shouldn’t be a problem taking photos in public spaces as long as you’re not photographing the homeless, disabled, sick, and even children. But what if you’re still having doubts about pressing the shutter, in the fear of upsetting a potential subject? Eric Kim says, just go and take that shot; you’re only going to “minorly annoy” someone.
