Assignment

Hi... Would it be alright if I took your photograph? That's how simple this week's challenge is. Take a Portrait Of A Stranger. Well, there's more to it than meets the eye, of course - your location, time of day, and the willingness of a stranger to be kind enough to take some time out of their life to help you (a stranger yourself to them). But there's magic in a camera - some people just open up when they know they're the focus of a well-crafted photograph. There's creative and technical hurdles here too - one of the more important ones being time - you'll have far less time to compose and take your photo(s) than you would if you had pre-arranged a shoot. You could grab a candid shot or something more glamorous; go low-key to get a moody and intense look. It's portraiture after all and the images you can get are as varied as there are humans on the planet. You're about to experience a shared moment of creative intimacy with someone you've never met before. So, for those of us who don't list "people person" as a soft-skill, this week, let's get ready to go out of our comfort zones and befriend your next new friend. Please don't shoot from the hip. Talk to a person. If your palms get sweaty just thinking about it, like me, then go with an easier subject, like your local coffee barista, mailperson, or waiter. Don't over think this one, other people are just you in a different rental.
