Hence its amazing to see some of the difference and allows me to understand more. In one forum after I said I took it from the hip, they posted the way of a friends that tries a total differrent way to SP. A P&S modified to look like a phone. Strange but its true.

I have also flip through a book on shots taken by vision disable photogs. You will be suprised as how they see the world...

I hope I could one day to do that successfully to convey my view at the point I click to the viewer, the road its long but with constructive comments all of us can make it even a slow learner like me... Thanks
may i know whats the site? its a good idea to see comments from ppl of the other culture.

discussion is good as both party can learn other's idea...share experience...but not just simply follow...

in my opinion...street photography is very subjective...u can put camera on your head, your shoulder, your hip, even your legs...good or bad comments is ok...finally u evaluate yourself...useful tips adapt...not useful ignore...no right or wrong...
you shoot for yourself...then u have to know yourself...
if you shoot for customer...then u have to know your customer...

no 2nd Matt Stuart (he is dam creative...)...or Joewig.....
the coolest is i shoot it my way...my style...
street art has no rule....
just my 2 cents...

cheers...

You bet, my son started shooting a year ago when he was 6, with my Kodak 520 in Siem Reap (which is similar in weight & size of the Canon 1D).

His lower angle shots can sometimes turned up better composition then me .
At that age they can be fearless & no inhibitions and can get away with shooting at anybody - only with amazed look from ppl rather then angry middle finger if we were shooting

Now he is using a Canon 20d, much lighter outfit and learning manual focus.

lots of their shots are actually quite "well thought of" with the logic only the kids will understand, and the perception of the world that you and me have lost after we've grown up.

do search for pixpros (thailand) is in thai I got a recent post which has close to 20 pics and Dpreview. If you are interested post your photos there at DPreview there is a weekly photography thread that runs it course for a week I was quite active for past one month there until I got busy with fashion show. I posted almost 2 pic per day. The cordinator is Peter Dumont.

The guy which I said convert a P&S convert to Handphone look a like is Peter friend, an ex KGB, his site is in russia. I got comments on one of my photo that they said looks like HCB style LOL. I believe I have yet to post here. I hope you will comment when its post and tell me which one u think it is. Or is it in this post gua? hahaha I used to be in Fred Miranda too but lost interest for a while, you could see Shaolin Tiger post there too...

I like:-

#1, if witout the girls at b/g would be better imo
#5, even with the half-cut head, just like it
#6, classic SooHK style!
#10, if without the guai lo at the back would be better imo
This is what I like specific.

I agreed for #1, I was aiming for more to the right but ended up the subject closely at the frame. As there is another interesting subject on the right too.

Same as Pic 10 too, I saw the lady for about few meters away walk towards aim for her to be in center of the frame but fail however still catch her on the corner In shot from the hip you need to practise for a long time before getting to frame the subject at the place u want. I still miss a lot...

#6 hahaha I am trying to break from this style ....hence trying out the shot from the hip way and see if it fits me..the other pic is what I am trying out to expand from my usual pic...

Thanks everyone...

I take snapshots all the time, that is, instinctive shots within a flick of my mine, whenever something interesting suddenly happens around me.

Divina of PM did mention something to that extend. So, it's not fair to categorise snapshots as lame/amateurish shots.

Haha, that picasso thread.
