OT: feeling awkward shooting in public
Mar 14, 2012

As I am getting out with my new NEX-7 walking the streets of NYC using my camera in an artistic endeavor, I find myself self conscious while shooting in public.

Not sure why. I like to take pictures of people doing interesting things but I don't like being seen taking the pictures. Not sure if I am afraid the person doesn't want their picture taken, or if I just feel awkward.

I also don't like people looking to see what I am taking a picture of. Like if I stop on a sidewalk to take an abstract or a macro up close I just feel really exposed and awkward.

Anyone else feel uncomfortable/self conscious snapping in public?

I guess it is something I will learn to get over.

Sony Alpha NEX-7
