Getting close is one of the toughest things to do in street photography, but it’s a very important skill to develop over time. If you’re nervous, start far away and work your way closer over time. If you’re really nervous, you can even start with a few street portraits. Asking someone for their photo will help you get comfortable quickly, and it’s a great way to get used to getting in close (and also realizing that most people will be flattered)! However, with a small, light camera and prime lens, some acting, and waiting in the right place to intersect with your subjects, you can learn to get close without your subjects noticing that you’re taking their photographs. Getting close will allow you to capture more intimate moments. Your viewers will feel part of the scene, and expressions, gestures, and emotions will be much more noticeable.
