One of the styles of Photography that I really seem to enjoy is Street Photography. Although I don't often have a chance to do it, I find it very interesting and exciting. Capturing unique looking individuals can be fun and also a bit intimidating. The question is always to ask permission to take the photo, or simply snap away paperazzi style. I've done it both ways and the more often you ask for permission, the easier it is to do. However, I do remember a specific time photographing homeless people in downtown Lakeland for a Project. I was accused of being a police officer undercover and taking pictures to turn the people in. In hindsight, I should not have done that project alone as I was quickly out numbered with my only weapon being my camera...and quick wit. :)
