Despite the name, Street Photography is not restricted to “photography on a street” but it often is. Street Photography is really just candid photos. I’m not a big street photographer. I think that’s mainly because when people see someone with a DSLR and a large lens pointed at them, they freak out. People are accustomed to people walking around with cell phones and don’t really pay attention.
Recently, I was at the Dulles Town Center Mall in Sterling, VA and saw the attendant at the carrousel studying during some downtime. I was afraid that she would see me, but she was paying more attention to her books than she was to me.
