July: Strangers

by Joseph Demarco August. 04, 2018 2684 views

July's challenge was straight forward - head into the city and take photos of strangers. The only two rules I gave myself were that they had to be strangers and I had to ask them first. The point was to help me become even more comfortable approaching and talking to strangers and to force me to be spontaneously creative.

I think it was successful though I would love to do it again. The first person was the only one I posed - the rest I shot documentary style. I feel I need to revisit this idea and make myself take the time to actually pose everyone, like a mini portrait shoot.

Most everyone I asked was excited to be a part of this project though - only two people said no! Better than I thought I'd get.
