Someone hires me to go out and photograph people in a shopping centre for a day and I do without issue. I don't get shy or nervous. I do the job. Essentially its indoor street photography. Then why am I shy doing real street photography by myself for my photoblog? Is it any less legitimate, no. I'm documenting life on the streets as so many have before me, and as many currently do. Its very annoying when I get this way. I think I need that pressure of working for someone else, knowing that I have to get the shots or I won't get paid to spur me on. Its silly. I'm quite tempted to get a 135mm lens and enjoy it at a distance, but I know that I should use 50mm like the real men do However when you can get photos like this, this, and these it makes me think that getting those shots is more important than caring about whether I adhered to the "rules" of street photography or not. Bah, I feel silly.
