Valerie and David answer the following questions:
Frank Meffert: "What was the weirdest thing that happened to you on the streets?"
Andrew Raff : "Hi, I am a keen Street Photographer. […] I have not been doing this for long but the one thing I have found most frustrating is the extreme variations on what constitutes a "Street" image and what one can and cannot do with an image. For example, is a Portrait that shows no context of their surroundings...but (to me) is purely a Portrait; this may have been taken on the streets..but would you class it a "Street" Photography. Should it be 'purely' "Casual". Should, or can a shot be "set up". Can one manipulate or just use one colour in the final image. Should images be cropped to show just the focus or people of the image; and many other questions I continually ask......with vastly differing answers. May I ask - your opinion; your parameters of do's and do nots, or should and should not. I am with a small Camera Club and would like to impart some knowledge for this fascinating Genre of Photography. I hope you can find the time to send me a short reply to my questions."
