Photographs of Strangers by P52 PRO Group

This was the first assignment completed by the Project 52 PRO’s. Photographing strangers can be a very delicate and scary idea for a lot of people. The fear of rejection or having the subject be angry stops most from ever attempting photographing people they do not know.

I wanted to get a very uncomfortable assignment right up front. Let’s get over some fears and find our work in the best circumstances.

Knowing how difficult this assignment would be made it perfect for working through the tough issues to follow. To their credit, all the pros made it through the assignment just fine. No broken bones, no irate subjects and very few flying bullets.

All in all it was quite a success.

This is a random sampling of some of the best from the assignment:

    • I think you did an amazing job :) I agree that photographing strangers is definitely daunting. It’s part of the photographer’s role to bring out the character from the subject and have them open up. Great results.
