    As far as to the size of the. Camera it depends on where I'm shooting. If on a public road, sidewalk I've shot with my Sony A7R2 – 55mm with no problems. With the D4 security were always in a rage to have me keep moving. With the Sony RX100IV I'm never bothered.

    Speaking of freezing the subject would it better to set the camera on manual mood and set all the setting one by one or would it be better to use programmed mood with a fairly high (of course not too high to avoid noise) . I personally find it hard to choose which in a moment ?

    I've found with street photography that if I put my Fuji x100 on f2 and 4000 I'm able to get a sharp picture. Maybe I should try f8 and 500 and bump the ISO up

    Thank you so much for this video. Ive never done street photography before, but Ive been doing a lot of research on in the past few days and I love trying to see all the stories that a picture can tell. I mainly do nature photography, but there is only so much I can do with the same flowers and birds. I love it, dont get me wrong but I dont have the means to go to enough places to capture all of these beautiful parts of nature yet. so Ive decided to broaden my horizon and try different types. abstract is one of them but I saw street photography and fell in love with all the faces, the stories the moments that so many of us walk right by because they are strangers and we as humans have programmed ourselves to focus only on what we know.
    I love the idea of interacting with your subject, I am an incredibly shy person so this will be a challenge for me, but interacting with the subjects, get to know their true story instead of just making up your own, or seeing a silhouette in a doorway. seeing the smiles, that's what makes the photo more powerful to me. so no, I even despite my overly shy introverted nature, id rather not be that creepy bitch in the bushes taking a photo of strangers trying to enjoy their subs at their lunch break. Read the story, sometimes you dont always have to create your own.

    it's far creepier having someone shove a camera right up in your face because the photographer can't differentiate between "getting close" and being a fucking cunt

    "shooting from the bushes across the street" is a gross and pointless exaggeration. shooting with a lens in the 75-120 mm range not only gives you distance if that helps you to feel more comfortable (which there is absolutely nothing wrong with), it also cuts down on people's behavior changing because they see someone with a camera raised to their eye nearby.

    Great tips. Only thing I well not really disagree, more like maybe an addendum. One lens and body to carry is fine, but have backup gear in the car trunk. Things fail. Two is one, one is none. Mostly until I learned to stop kicking myself in the ass for not taking a tripod in the car for a shot. Its good to find something, and have an option to head back to a vehicle to re-equip. Thanks for the vid Matt, keep up the great work.

    All good, common sense, tips. The only thing I would question is the female attraction to big cameras – a lot of women seem attracted to my retro style X100S, with remarks about it being "cute".
    On another tack, tell me if you have a fear of being muted if ever your arms were tied? 😉
