I’m really trying to grow as a photographer. One of the ways I’m doing that is by taking some of the challenges laid before me by various blogs I follow. For example, Digital Photography School, a long time favorite blog, often issues a weekly challenge. For several months now, I’ve been ignoring them. Also, I found this amazing group on the Flickr Blog called the 100 Strangers Project, which challenges the photographer to approach a stranger, ask permission to take their photo, have a brief get-to-know-you conversation, and then hand them a card where they can view it. This is supposed to help us grow in making our subjects feel more comfortable in front of a camera. As soon as I read this article, I knew I had to do it. You can be sure that will definitely be coming soon.
So. Here goes nothing.
