Street photography in the UK. Need tips!
May 15, 2014

Street photography has been something I've put off trying since I'm unsure of how people will react once they see a stranger snapping away in the street. I've only ever taken pictures of buildings in the street.

I'm in the UK, so have any UK street photographers had any problems with the public? Have you ever been asked to stop what you're doing, delete the picture, got yelled at for it?

Should I ask permission before taking pictures of people?
Should I keep it discreet and try to look like I'm not doing anything?
Also what lens would you recommend for street and architecture photography? I currently have a 50mm, 18-55mm and a 55-250mm.

Any help would be great.
