Tip of the Week: Be Inconspicuous

 

Observe a place and internalise it. Try to become a part of it. The subjects around you are your own people. Listen to local inhabitants. Do not be very obvious when you shoot. Avoid carrying a big camera bag or backpack. If someone stops you from shooting pictures, try to be calm rather than get agitated. At times, you may have to shoot pictures of people only to please them. Talk to the locals about the different things that happen on the street or locality at different times of the day.
