  1. First, Plan ahead; research the area you’re going to what kind of pictures or stories you want to get and why are you photographing the street, this is key and will give you a sense of direction.
  2. Second, go with a friend if possible.
  3. Third, dress like the street. Don’t put on flashy outfits, dark colored outfits are the best.
  4. Furthermore, use simple gear. A camera body and a wide-angle lens are perfect, you don’t need a whole studio set!
  5. In addition, be friendly, and don’t be too rigid. Smile often and use street slang.
  6. Lastly, Shoot away.
