I went to downtown Boston today to try my luck. I'd love your thoughts. It was harder than I thought.

I like the pictures and think it's a good example of "street photography". That's an area I wish I were more confident in but am pretty self conscious. I'd like to be able to use my 50mm instead of the few times I've used a zoom for some people shots.

I used my 50mm 1.8. It is a little awkward at first. Some people look at you like, Who the heck are you snapping pictures at? Others look like they wanna punch you in the face. some shots were spray and pray with my 8 FPS 7D

Thanks for the response. Guess the best thing for me to do is put on the 50 1.8 and get out and about and see how it goes.

Actually I got some great tips on YouTube. Check out Digital Rev and a few others by typing street photography.

Looks more like portraits of people on the street. So I guess that's one way of interpreting Street Photography. :)

Interesting shots, I like most those depicting musicians.
