Yep, K R Market has amazing potential but also you got to be a little more careful there. And another thing is there are a lot of cliched shots from K R Market, not that there's anything wrong with it, just that I'd prefer something different. All the best, I am so missing bangalore right now :(.

I don't know why but somehow I'm not comfortable taking photos of people so close up. Any tips for me? How to take such photos without annoying people?

Isolated subjects on a street is very easy, smile, talk, shoot and show them what you shot, they will be happy to pose more, unless its a young girl whose father is around, you will be lucky if you can get away with your camera . Another professional advise I like to share from a world famous people photographer: Be part of the crowd, dress like them, talk their language, spend time around so you become one of them. Rest will be easy with the camera !
blue_pulsar,
Shaju makes a very very important point about dressing up and talking their language etc. Everyone has a circle of fear, so you need to be careful when you get too close. Don't get scared, but build a rapport and you'll see how friendly people are. Infact, about 7-8 months back when we had gone to a small town near Hesarghatta (where Shaju got an awesome photo of a little girl and called it "Hope"), the people there were very generous to us. I didn't shoot anything because I just wanted to hang out and talk to them. In the end, one man was kind enough to take us to his small farm and treat us with Guavas. I had a feeling, he would ask for money, but no, he said he just wanted us to feel like guests. These experiences want to make you go and shoot more. And yes, always spend time talking to them as they are curious to know what you're upto. And yes be prepared to answer the question "Why do you want to photogrpah me/us?, Are you a reporter?" . I have given weirdest answers to such questions and yes, talking the local language always helps . Hope, some of this helps you.

Evo,
Loved both the sets. I like the second one (Cambodia) better as they have a feel to it. That feel is intangible and is communicated really really well. I think I have seen the first one on a different thread when you wanted to emphasize about story telling. Way to go! More photographs please.

Yep totally agree on this one. Street photography lets you explore and you get meet a lot of interesting folks. It lets you enjoy a place and all you need to do is keep walking. I have been confronted by political parties, Cops, general people but mostly think Im a journalist, also I delete the picture if someone is not comfortable with that. One suggestion is dont whip the camera out immediately on the location. Typically in markets, Just hang around there, initiate a discussion, make people around that place comfortable and mainly let them know you are harmless.

evo, loved all your images. Robin you are in the line of Nat Geo ! HW, we know there is more life to the indoors of Vegas than those aerial images, so if you dont mind, share some sizzling images from those gambling zones, I am also curious to know how your new cam works indoors

As we are discussing on street shoots, here is another one from Avenue road. This is my 5th and last for the month of April, hope to come back with interesting images from my 10 days travel ! See you guys on 2nd May 2011
