Let me tell you: a skillful oyster shucker is MESMERIZING. He grabs an oyster, shuck shuck shucks, casually tosses the empty shell into a waiting pot, and repeats, and repeats, and repeats. See that white blur by his hip? That’s an oyster shell in midair.

Hey photographers— do you have a technique for taking photos of strangers? I usually snap first, smile and ask permission after they catch me. Is there a better way?
