The world is full of interesting faces, but shooting strangers can be intimidating. Sometimes the best way to get over a fear is to make a game or an exercise of it, creating a reason to approach someone on the street and take their picture. In that spirit, we encourage you to emulate photographer Ata Adnan and give yourself the assignment to photograph a certain number of strangers. Ata shot 100, but even a smaller goal will help get you out there, capturing fascinating people.
If you’re still not sure about how to approach your subjects, check out Photographyblogger.net’s helpful post on How to Approach Strangers. Hopefully you’ll take a few that you’ll want to submit to Cutcaster, so don’t forget to have your ‘strangers’ sign our model release!
