Just a clarification. You don't need a model release if your "street" photos are not for commercial purposes. So for art or journalism, if you're in public, and they are in public, it's all good.
So here are a few I took at a recent outdoor music event in San Antonio. It's kinda interesting when they catch you. The first guy saw me, and if you look closely in the second, behind the child you can see a guy looking at me wondering what I'm doing.

Mike,
Nice capture!..I agree with your ''be obvious statement'' as I have often done that. Usually with my camera bag on left shoulder, My DSLR in my righ shoulder a p&s around my neck and another dslr in my hands. Most folks would just assume I am a pro taking photos and don't gibe me a second thought or will pose for me.

Mike and Javier,
I had to chuckle about the "be obvious" approach. Shortly after my daughter got her K10D, she went with a friend to a trade show where her mother was an exhibitor. Both she and her friend had dSLRs with large zoom lenses attached. Everywhere they went at the show, they were asked to take pictures of people and booths. Everyone thought they were taking pictures in some sort of official capacity.

Interesting similar experience. I was at a wedding this weekend, and while my sister-in-law was the official wedding photographer, I was there also taking some pictures to help out as well as just for fun. However, she did not get to go to the rehearsal dinner as I did, and I wasn't originally planning on taking many photos. But I did snap a few shots, and when people started noticing that others were having their pictures made, they started worrying that they would be left out and began to request having their photos taken. People also asked me if I was the wedding photographer, but I politely explained the circumstances to them. Hopefully my sister in law can use some of them, but I wasn't really as prepared as I needed to be.

A few that I've tried. It is not my preferred style but I've only had the camera since May and haven't really learned how to blend in or stand out depending on the crowd. The 2nd (from today actually) I missed the focus as the fellow turned around to stare at me, too bad.

jamonation, That first image is absolutely brilliant in every way.
Think of how boring that image would be with out those folks at the end of the hall way...Well done. That second image where you got caught is also very good. That fellow starring you down makes the image.

Keep shooting and always be ready to run ...Lol

Really like this thread, so wanted to contribute in some way.

All shot in Tokyo at various places.
First is of a family day out at a shirine. Grandparents taking the pic.
Second is a birds eye view of a homeless man.
Third is of a fellow Pentaxian using his point and shoot at a park.

I've done various crops with them, but these are the originals.
All of them were with 18-55 at the 55 end.

Wow, there are some really nice captures going on...
Here are a few more that are recent. Not on the level of those above, but here are a few more.

I love family images. There is something so right about them.


down on his luck.
