Chicago Tribune staff photographer Scott Strazzante’s “Shooting from the Hip” blog features street-photography from the neighborhoods of Chicago with unpredictable compositions that offer a genuinely candid look at the people and their lifestyles.
“Shooting with the iPhone, I was identified as just another person on the street, not a suspicious person with a camera, but a person with a “phone.” I was able to blend in unnoticed like never before. I prefer stealth and anonymity in my approach to street photography. Other photographers can be very effective by shoving a DSLR and flash in someone’s face on the street. Not me. The size of the phone plays into my approach.”
