Street tip with AF point

Find yourself a discreet place to shoot from, preferably to one side of a busy pavement. Watch the scene and then pre-set a focus point off-centre. Oncoming persons are then not looking down your lens and you can nail them just like that without them imagining that you're actually photographing them. A bit sneaky, but it works a treat.

Here, the guy is interested in my X-E1 + 23, but neither he nor his lady think they're the subject of the shot -
