Photographing someone you don’t know can be a scary proposition for many of us. I am definitely not comfortable walking up to someone and striking up a conversation. And typically, I don’t! UNLESS… I have my camera in hand. From behind the lens, I can easily and without hesitation walk up to people and ask to make their picture. The camera makes it about the photograph, not me—and it becomes a shield and a passport to meeting people.
In this assignment, I challenge you to photograph a stranger – someone you don’t know…yet. Tell us a story, portray an emotion – just simply through the image you take. Give it a try – you’ll surprise yourself! May the force be with you!
