NYC is the capitol of street work. Sure, many people got a phone in their hand and it can get old taking photos of people with phones in their hand.

L.A. is also bad...

There is a good thing about the cell phones. People are glued to the screen and candid works is easier for the new photog that does not have good street skills.

Don't quite before you start. Just put in the footwork and boom...things happen. You need the right gear, the right attitude and the skill to get it. You don't find it outside...go inside.

Once in a while you will even find someone without a phone!

Meyerowitz?

I like his speeches better than his street work. He has been around a long time, so he has to be shown some respect from his connection to the golden age of photography...1970's. He has a big body of work anyway.

Phones killed the sexiness of the street??

Nah, still sexy stuff on the street. Don't know if this forum will go for the photos, so wont post em.

True about the phones, but it does make you work harder for the shot, ie getting someone without the phone. That usually results in more rewarding images.
