    Most of it is "being at the right place at the right time".

    Then again you have to be out there looking for the right time.

    Point and shoot. Pray hard when developing film. Either curse or jump for joy when the photos come out good

    street photography belongs to your own imagination ~~ anywhere you go .. you compose your photos in your mind .. and snap ..

    you'll need to be swift in picturing, fast in setting your camera up .. and accurate in getting into the right posture for your shot to be balance~~

    street photography might sometimes needs luck ... but i think what street photography is agility to handle all in split seconds~~ or you'll just tend to miss the natural moment~~

    Street photography is an art. It is the work of imagination. The best thing about street photography is that it is possible for the final viewer of a print to see more than the original photographer. One of the great things about a city is that more things are happening, even within a small neighborhood, at any moment than any human can comprehend. Photography allows us to freeze one of those moments and study all of the small dramas that were taking place. For more information visit here: http://www.printyourcanvas.com

    Set my camera ready to shoot.

    Look for the right place, wait for right subject.

    Look for the right subject, wait for the right moment.

    Look for the right light, wait for the right subject and pray for the best of luck to get the right subject under the right light.

    80% of my street photos are not taken with the camera but through visualisation when you have some peace of mind. The camera just records my visualisation when I go out in the streets.

    Re: How you do your street photos?

    Ultimately, it's the mindset and goal:

    - Are you an artist? Or are you simply documenting?
    - Are you a voyeur or participant?
    - Do you visualise in B&W or in colour?
    - Do you shoot in a straightforward fashion or play with complex juxtaposition?
    - Do you like multiple or singular human elements in your street image?
    - How do you view the streets and what is your interpretation?
    - Are you looking to pass on information or are you looking to please in terms of photographic aesthetics?
    - Are you shooting with a theme/project in mind?

    Or you can be like me and just shooting whatever you fancy.

    I have high regard and respect for those who venture to street photography. I tried, but could not take any good picture. I had walked Petaling Street for 3 conservative evenings with my camera on hand and did not even take one good picture.

    First, I think of a subject or location, then I go around shooting and don't stop until I get at least 1 satisfied photo

    Re: How you do your street photos?

    A big part of shooting street for me is overcoming fear. Fear of bringing my camera up in front of people I don't know, fear of getting close (the closer the better), and fear that someone in the image will get upset (happened to me once in Singapore; that was uncomfortable). But looking back at my street shots, the ones that have been best received are the ones with the most "risk" involved in taking them.
