“If the picture isn’t good enough, you are not close enough” is a famous quote of Magnum co-founder and photographer Robert Capa.
This quote completly descripes street photography for me. Keeping it in mind, I roam the streets catching the perfect composition at very close range. I approach the composition as close as I can without disturbing it, and believe me … I can be very close to the subject, within one meter. The result is that one can see the admosphere and emotion that was present at the moment I ‘clicked’.
