This time I focussed (pun intended) on encounters: people having interactions with each other in a way that made me smile, if only just a little.
Being more relaxed now, I don’t mind if my subjects take note of my pointing a camera at them. It gives me more time to take a picture, even watch composition, check on focus and take more shots if I want to. When noticed I smile, pretend I was photographing something else by looking away after shooting, just walk on or whatever. Your own behaviour is crucial in a way I’m only beginning to slightly understand. Key to this is experience, experience, experience, I guess.
