        @smordant: It's great to read the story behind your first stranger and thanks for posting it. You have to be careful though shooting strangers gets kind of addictive.

        I just got my mini cards from moo for my 100 strangers project and thought i might share them.

          An excellent article, I was just wondering if you give them to sign a model release form after you take their photo?
          Also do you email them the photo you take as well, if they ask?

          Cheers

            This is a great idea! Thanks for your sharing!
            I will definitely try it after I gain a bit more experience on taking portrait.
            I am still a newbie with my camera.

              If I get an excellent portrait I may sometimes ask to sign something similar to a model release. But that is very rare. I guess it is also important in which country your are living.
              I have talked with several stranger hunters in australia and they told me you don't need a model release if you take a picture of someone on the street. One of the photographers from australia even published a book with his strangers and stories.

              I don't think this should be your main concern at the beginning of the project. I am starting to think about it now, but that is after I have photographed more than 300 strangers.

              Do it! That is one of the best ways to get better taking pictures. It isn't important at the beginning of the portrait it isn't important to get perfect pictures, the most important part is to get started, the great pictures come when you start feeling at ease.
              I even suggest to put your camera on Aperture priority or even on full automatik for the first 10-20 portraits. Then when you feel more confident you can start making slight changes to the apperture, shutter speed and iso.

              Tbh with you the only portrait I shot before the project where those of my family and a few friends. But I wanted to get better and this is where this project came handy.

              Go for it! Any excuse for not starting is keeping you from growing. (That is if you are interested in portraiture)

                    I love this idea! I just started out last night. It isn't easy for me to approach strangers.. I'm working on building my nerves a bit.

                      But once you get the shots the feeling is exhilarating. Time to get working on some more strangers.

                        This is a project i would love to try. I have found myself to be a very reclusive person. Especially behind the camera.

                            I would also like to do this. Extraction from my comfort zone will be very difficult. I can't imagine approaching a complete stranger. Perhaps start with my friends.

                              The first strangers are hard for everyone ; ) take the plunge you won't regret it.

                              Hell yeah, i remember my thumping heart when I asked my first stranger. Just go for it and don't think about what the other people are thinking.

                              You only profit from this project if you go all the way, it doesn't work if you try to cut corners. You can take pictures of your friends for fun, but not for this project. This project is only for taking pictures of strangers. I suggest you start easily try taking pictures of strangers who aren't rushing about, people sitting or window shopping since they have more time on their hands and will less likely say no. Good luck
