How far back does everyone's street photography go? I'd love to see some vintage street stuff! I believe the first I took were in 1997.
I started street about 2 years ago. I will look for some old stuff.

If we look at Twoks pictures, most of those are snap shots and nothing more...But still I enjoy them. I like the facial expressions in some of them and others I like the interaction, but they are nothing special...I could sit with in a corner with a telephoto and take those types of shots all the day long, but that is not what I do....
You wouldn't get the same perspective from a telephoto and I wouldn't have the same challenge to take them. I believe all of the shots I've posted here were taken with a 50mm or shorter lens.

I also find it amusing that some people want to lump all of ones work based on a few pictures as opposed to the entire context of ones work.....Twok, You do not need to answer this, but ask yourself..Did you ever read the O.P? iF
you would have, many of the questions you asked would have been answered...Here is the O.P.
I read the first few lines of your first post. I didn't say anything until I'll looked through nearly all of your smug mug, and even then, I asked pointed questions. I didn't call your work snap-shots or crap, but you seem to be horribly offended. I like when someone asks did I consider shooting a different way or why do these shots have such selective focus or shallow DoF. I think if you looked through my flickr you would see that while I do shoot what I like a lot, which is dark scenes with shallow DoF, you will see that I have a huge breadth of work. Using the term 'snapshot' to degrade my work is something I don't appreciate. As someone once put it I prefer to call some of these shots, 'snapshots with style'. So much so my 'folio is poking fun at snapshots:
30 Snapshots: a Portfolio

Now if you can't take just the mildest critique or questions about your shots you not only need thicker skin, but you must have your own doubts as well.


Once again, what feeling do you intend to portray with your shots? You've made my simple post into something much more than it was.

Again, I've seen many nice shots of yours. Don't get so bent out of shape over the internet.

I am trying to find the negatives. I'll try to pull out a few of the better ones when I do. The film that was available for 110 at the time it was discontinued was 10x better than what was available in the late 70s.
