Do Not Fear 'The Kiss of Viewminder'

This man was afraid of 'The Kiss of Viewminder.'


Sometimes my approach to street shooting is a little shocking to the subject.


It's only happened a few times...


But I feel really bad about it.


When I come out of nowhere with that D300 shooting 8 frames per second I guess I can be kinda scary.


It's not like I was hiding and jumped out at the guy though.


We were both just walking down the sidewalk.


As soon as I see a reaction like this through the viewfinder I stop and apologize.


I try to be as mellow and unobtrusive as I can... especially at night... but there have been three or four people who got scared.


I'm sorry. You have my sincere apologies.
