I can’t get into a habit to write here often. I believe that it’s a matter of time and value of materials (i.e. photos) that I’d like to share. I wanted to write this post a long time ago, but better late than never. Today morning I made a series of snapshot on my 3gs of Indian labourers, this one below I posted on my Instagram account
I’ve noticed that people most of the time don’t pay attention when I shoot them on iPhone, just because it looks unprofessional. If I have DSLR in my hands, situation changes dramatically, some people start to protest against photos – waving their hands, or arguing to delete the shot if I had a luck to press the shutter button before, some people trying to hide or get out of a camera sight, and the rest just pose for photography (the bravest ones). Generally speaking, I don’t like when people pose, portraits became “dry” and lifeless, image looking like “passport photo” and, sadly, it’s going to a waste bin later at home. I don’t want to touch moral aspect of shooting people, taking into account their cultural and religious taboos, I respect people feelings and privacy, but that is another story.

You make a good point about DSLRs, I might have to try a few more random shots with the phone!
Surprisingly, it works but not all the time. Some people are against making pictures of themselves by all means. It worth to mention also that modern mirrorless digital cameras, like Nikon 1 for instance, are also nice for street and people shooting.
