Not going to lie, I love watching famous street photographers work. I've been wanting to see one of Bruce Gilden in action for a while, and finally one surfaced on youtube.

Very in their face and confrontational. I love it.

Thanks for sharing, I was surprised at how many didn't say a word to him.
Very, very real and interesting photos.

i wish i had the stones to just walk up to people and take their pictures. some pretty interesting stuff comes from the genuine looks on their faces.

Its fun as hell actually, especially with flash. Ask jnovak about when I totally short circuited a group of 50 year old dSLR users by walking into the middle of them and taking a strait on photo of one of them with flash.

The result sucked, but the moment was great. :D

Call me crazy, but as I sit and try to premeditate ways I can shoot for the marathon this year, I can't help but wonder if the Gilden aproach might not work well for the people in the crowd shots.

Are you saying I should get a skin tight pink t-shirt that says "Baby Girl" on it, and not shave for the next month to make the creep factor higher, and thus, make the photos better?

When is the marathon, anyway? I'll be out and about 4x5 style that day.

I watched that video and came to the conclusion that photographer is a royal ass, did you notice how he did not take a photo of that big bald dude only some of the more vulnerable people? That style might work in NY, try it around here and your most likely going to get into a conflict. His photo’s might be interesting but, I don’t think as photographers we have the right to scare the crap out of people to take a picture.
