The camera you use in Street Photography is really not that important. It's really all about how you view a scene and approach it. How not to be shy when talking to strangers: - think of them as your friend before you even start speaking. - imagine yourself having a great time shooting and interacting with the people - share your work with them. - show them the pictures you took - shoot from further if you are still really shy - go talk to people and buy things for example without shooting first and ask if you can after.
How to minimize the risk of having your gear stolen: - be discreet when changing lenses, - don't show what's in your bag - cover the brand name and models of your camera if it's $$ - make your gear look older (ex with stickers like these: https://amzn.to/2Kpxq7C or just electrical tape) - avoid using big lenses... (not like me!)
