The second reason that I find street photography fun to do is that it requires me to
move out of my comfortable zone.
Street photography means taking picture of strangers.
Sometimes I ask for permissions before hand, sometimes afterwards, and sometimes I just
take a picture and walk away.
In any case, I'm intruding the private space of some strangers
(Although technically in many countries, it is perfectly legal to take picture of anything
in the public spaces). Most of the time, people will not be mad at what I do, and the worst
thing that could happen is that I am asked to delete the photo.
Yet, it is really uneasy to initiate such interactions. I'm not sure if an extrovert will
find it natural, but I know many people share my feelings. I definitely missed a lot of
interesting scenes due to hesitation.
