Did Hungary Just Outlaw Street Photography?

Tue March 18, 2014

From 15 March, the expanded law on consent now includes the taking of photographs and their publication. Hungary’s photographers call the new civil law vague and obstructive, and that it is tantamount of outlawing taking pictures without the permission of everyone who is identifiable in the photograph and who are not waving in protest, nor trying to hide or run out of shot. Suspicion is that it will also make it impossible to photograph police without first obtaining their permission.

Should Street Photography Be Outlawed?

Thu December 29, 2011

David Saxe has an interesting article over at BlackStar on whether Street Photography should be protected for the photographer as a right to photograph people in public places — or whether it is “rude and offensive to photograph a subject when they are unaware and without permission. [...] I even get the impression that they would like laws passed to enforce this notion.

In this social age where privacy is being trampled right and left, we understand the desire to protect our privacy, but banning or outlawing street photography is not the way to go. David Saxe explores what a world without street photography would be like.

In Your Face Street Photography With A Film Camera

Mon August 29, 2011


From norunorunotoji

Street photography may be the hardest type of photography to do since most of us are reticent to take pictures of strangers doing, well, things interesting enough to photograph. When we look at early works, we find that good street photographs capture what it was like back then.

In this video, the photographer simply keeps his eye to the camera and shoots away. He also is using a film camera, perhaps one of the medium-format Fujifilm 6×6 rangefinder. This in-your-face method works best in areas where photography is not yet frowned upon. In our modern cities, you may need to be a bit more subtle in going undetected by your quarries.

3 observations:

  • Not sure why the [beautiful] theme music for the Good, The Bad & The Ugly plays in the video.
  • I have also never seen a jacket with a hood long enough to fold over your eyes, acting as an eye shade.
  • Contrary to what one may think, apparently 120 Roll films are still abundantly available in some parts of the world. Go figure.

Daniele Barraco’s Milano Street Photography

Sat August 6, 2011


From VICTORbyHasselblad

Italian photographer Daniele Barraco approaches his street photography differently here. Instead of going after his subjects, he sets up shop and invites people off the street to pose for a more or less formal portrait. The results are great!

Street Photography Thru A Leica M9

Mon July 11, 2011


From erickimphotography

Street photography ain’t easy, to say the least, especially if you are shy around strangers. Do you ask for permission or do you just shoot sureptitiously and quickly move on? I’ve done mostly the latter but when I see an owner and his/her dog, I usually stop, smile and ask for the permission to shoot the dog or both. People are so proud of their pooch that they always say, Yes. And, don’t forget to always smile a thank you at them.

In this video, Eric Kim shoots the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica with the Leica M9 and the 35mm f/1.4 Summilux. And he attaches his cellphone to the viewfinder to give us a thru the Leica M9 viewfinder point of view.
