haha, no, she is an awful photography companion. She is high energy (aussie) -- they have Dog ADHD -- so stopping for more than 20 seconds is not recommended. I do take my camera with me when I take the dog out but the order of priority is dog over camera at that point. She also draws more attention to me which is not what I want when I go out. I did manage a few decent shots last night with her on Robson as there is a lot to keep her occupied and looking around.

And this is my first real kid photo where you can identify them... I was a bit worried, not sure of the etiquette on that, but then I figured we shouldn't live in such a paranoid state of mind. She is another person on a public street doing public things.

I have seen your dog photos.he is a sweet face.

I also would be worried about the photos of kids.but its a big city, you are on the street..the Mother never noticed you? That's what surprised me.

There are quite a few times I would love the aim the camera and catch a moment.but the whole privacy thing works its way into my brain.:o I have been know to take photos of people from behind.lol...I am brave in certain areas..chicken in others.

I love the balmoral hotel. it's the kind of shot that will stand the test of time. A sunset is O.K. But this shot will be appreciated for it's place in vancouver history. Even the street shots that have the name of the street will be appreciated years from now.

The guy with the yellow hair is just asking some one to take his picture. Good shot.

I think they each had their own focus. The father was holding the hand of the girl in front and he was checking me out. I try not to look directly at my subject as I fire when I think it might be too noticeable.

Love the hip shots Hoff :)

With the battery grip on my 40D it sticks out of my chest like a cannon (haha), rather than hanging down. I could walk around with my hands in my pocket using the remote trigger.

Thanks guys. I can't say what I said out loud when I first saw these ones so, excellent work on these ones Hoff :) Does the way you attach the strap make a big difference in shooting from the hip?

I was thinking the same thing LD, remote in a pocket and tuck the camera under my arm.

Seems like the "easy" way out if you use a WR. One of the joys of street photography, IMO is the buzz of taking shots without people noticing or if they do see you, you just grin and act normal.

Actually shadow the percpetion is quite the opposite. The flickr groups almost refuses to allow pool shots of telephoto zoom.

people will always try to stop you doing the right thing if it is unconventional
Full frame and some primes.

I don't want shots of peoples reactions to me shooting them, I want to see if I can translate what I see onto the image. So far I've only got one successful image but that was enough to get me hooked. Street has a level of honesty you can't get with landscape or wildlife. For me anyways.

When i said "if they see you" i meant after the shot was tkaen not them looking at the lens during the shot.

I just think that using a Wirelless thing just ruins it in my opinion.

Meh, theirs to their own.

I think you guys just got the wires crossed. Shadowkipper was saying a Wireless Release is cheating -- not a Wide Angle.

I still haven't tried the remote release thing yet... when I take off the grip and put the camera around my neck, all of my lenses go top heavy and point the camera down... except for my Takumars, which don't autofocus. I may have to rock it with the grip on as well.

And as for cheating...? Whatever gets the candid shot, I think, is acceptable. It isn't any different from shooting from the hip; just another way of holding the camera and secretly taking a photo, right?
