Sometimes … quite often, I see stuff in the grocery store that I would like to take pictures of. I don’t feel comfortable taking pictures in stores because twice, I’ve been told not to. First time was a store in a mall in Quebec and the second time was here in Saint John, in a mall called Brunswick Square.
The other day, I shot these, irresistable, dragon fruits with my cell phone. I felt like a bandit, hoping nobody saw me (!). Cell phones can be really good for photos … if the lighting is good! Not otherwise, and this was a disappointment.
One time, a couple of years ago … in fact, I think it was the same day as I’d bought the 50mm lens … I saw something there in the supermarket, that I just had to shoot, so I got a hold of the manager there and asked permission. I’m still happy I did …
How do you feel about shooting pictures in stores and public spaces?
