Things I learnt today:
1. People in London don't really care - even if you are really obviously taking their photo. This meant that on occasion I was able to handhold the camera and structure my shots more directly.
2. By rigging up the camera strap to the correct length, I could use my upper body as a good stabiliser and angle the shots to the best viewpoint.
3. I have a habit of inadvertently looking directly at the people I am shooting which makes them
a. think I am weird and b. wonder what I am up too. (STOP LOOKING AT THEM!!!)
4. Because of how I balance the camera on my chest, every time I take a shot - apparently I swing my whole upper body around and look weird....
