I was interested in other photographers' techniques for capturing candid images of people on the street. I have always been intrigued by street photography, particularly candid shots where knowledge of the camera does not influence behavior, etc. But I often find myself trigger-shy for a variety of reasons, including the fact that the pictures I want to take can perhaps be invasive, and the mere fact that someone sees me with a camera can be enough to ruin the candidness of the moment. Although I have a 70-200 mm telephoto lens, I rarely use it for street photography because it draws too much attention. Instead, I have been walking around with a 50 mm lens attached to a shutter release which is in my jacket pocket. It's an interesting way to "shoot from the hip," and I've gotten some decent images from it so far, but many of the images are unuseable due to blur or poor framing (it's hard when you're not looking through the viewfinder!) I know Walker Evans published a book of subway photographs in which he placed his camera in a bag, allowing him to take pictures of people sitting right across from him as they virtually stared right into the camera. If anyone would like to share their own methods, I'd be interested to hear them.
