So… I was feeling pretty uninspired, only picking my camera up for scheduled shoots, when my friend Noa Noa Girl suggested we try a photo project.
We’d tried the weekly theme projects in the past, but this time I wanted something less… scheduled. Too often I found myself up late the night before the end of the week, half ass-ing a mediocre shot jut to fit the theme. I quickly lost interest, and the camera went back to sitting on the shelf.
Thus began the search for inspiration for my inspiration.
Almost immediately I stumbled on these guys- 100strangers – and knew I had my project.
It seems perfect, and totally terrifying. Not only does it give me a reason to take my camera with me everywhere I go, but it has the potential to help me grow as a headshot photographer too, by forcing me to adapt to the environment and to see shoot portraits quickly…
I should mention the thought of approaching strangers on the streets of New York fills me with sweaty, twitchy, heart pounding soical anxiety stress.
That shouldn’t be a problem… right?
Anyway….. Here I go, off to work up the courage to meet 100 new people.
