Street photography is a photography genre I’ve been wanting to try but haven’t actually dared to. My main concern has been the law — who can I photograph where with or without their permission and which of these resultant photos am I allowed to publish? I didn’t expect The New Street Photographer’s Manifesto to answer these questions specifically. Nonetheless, there is a section that dispels general legal myths of street photography in the US and the UK. Tanya Nagar cautioned that it’s best to check the law according to your location. I’ll definitely be doing that.
Recently I found myself at one of the newly opened local libraries; specifically the one I dubbed the hipster library. Since a lot of the books on the shelves were new, I took it upon myself to check out all the photography books that caught my fancy. One of those books was Shooting Yourself.
