This question already has an answer here:
I'm interested in street photography but always had the fear of how people may react when I'm taking candid pictures. Because, I have seen people snatch away cameras and create a big drama on the street.
It seems that other photographers get different reactions because of their appearance. When taking similar shots the subjects are not bothered as much and may just shy away from the frame if not interested.
[This question is not a duplicate because I want to take candid shots and not approach people and make them pose]
