I've been working as a professional photographer for nearly a decade, but I still get a little nervous every time I head out to take some street shots.

There's nothing wrong with being a little nervous if you're out practising your street photography. Taking pictures of unaware people in candid situations, or approaching someone for a more deliberate photo isn't easy, but if you're trying to improve, acting the part of wallflower will only hinder your progress. It's a skill you'll need to develop, but you can improve your street photography effectiveness by following a few simple rules (and cracking open a cold one).
You've likely noticed that most city street lights aren't quite pure white. Some emit a warm, orange colour, while others are cold and green. When you're shooting photos that can be an annoyance if you don't want the colours to distract from your scene, but the types of light used are so common that you can easily compensate for them.
