of shooting in the streets. It has been my
speciality for the last 3 years and there
were not many people who did it the same

don’t like this way of unasked approach.

such photos yourself or not. The guideline
is here and there are a lot of sample photos
included. All you need to know how to get
closer, to shoot direct and fearless from a
very short distance.

Between the highs and the lows, he spent Saturday evening explaining how and why he took certain pictures.
