In my short experience with Street Photography I have learned that its definition can be controversial. I also learned that there is no right or wrong way of doing it, just different styles. This pool is supposed to be a fun way to categorize different street photography shooting styles. Please feel free to add your own on the comment section (see below for the definitions!).
1 – In your face – Gets up and close to the subject. Don’t ask for permission and shoots, run if needed.
2 – The Hipster – Shoots from the hip (sorry for the pun). May get really close to the subject but won’t let them realize that the picture was taken.
3 – Flasher – Bruce Gilden style of using Flash on street photography, but also used by many others. May scare people, but most often just blind them.
4 – Ambusher – Stays put, awaiting for the right moment. Click and wait for the next “victim”.
5 – Stalker – Uses a long 300mm on a SLR to be away from the subject (considered by many not street photography). May be confounded by a Paparazzi.
6 – Invisible – Every Street Photographer’s dream, only accomplished by HCB
