Street Photographers: Are You Genuinely Enamored with Moments, or are You Just a Voyeur?

I think that the love affair with street photography and everything about it is fantastic when the photographer shooting puts the camera to their eye and captures a moment that has good intent behind it. Anything else and everything else I think isn’t acceptable; and the idea of empathy for your subjects should be expanded to what the long term effects of the image may have on a person–to that end one should think about whether hurting someone else’s reputation is worth Reddit Karma, Instagram likes, etc. But unfortunately, even though there are loads of tutorials online about street photography, there isn’t a single tutorial on how to have empathy for others or on ethics. For far too long, the community has pretty much mandated common sense.
