Comments on: Ways of Working #5 (Honesty) http://2point8.whileseated.org/2005/09/20/ways-of-working-4-honesty/ A wide-open view of the practice of street photography by Michael David Murphy, While Seated. Thu, 15 Dec 2011 18:48:58 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.5 By: VEE http://2point8.whileseated.org/2005/09/20/ways-of-working-4-honesty/comment-page-1/#comment-93352 Thu, 18 Sep 2008 14:43:42 +0000 http://2point8.whileseated.org/?p=11#comment-93352 For my money, if I’m asking then I don’t consider it street photography but more in the field of street portraiture. And it’s funny how all this works — the other day I walked smack into the middle of a group of women in front of a restaurant and just took a series of shots without asking them. They never noticed me, it was as if I was invisable. And yet on other occasions I get such looks of hate from a distance if I even look like I might want to take a photo of someone.

For me it’s the geometry, relaxing and disappearing behind the lens, and most of all being sensitive to the moment. What I’ve found is that most people who have approached me are fascinated with the idea of street photography, I’ve had the “see the light” conversations with people too (they love the idea of learning to see light in, well, a different light) and I think overall they appreciate my honesty about why I’m out doing it. Regarding lens choice, definitely agree — it has to be with a prime lens (I’ve been using the 85mm and 50mm). This series is brilliant.
