Continuing on with my concept of the gathering place and lifeblood of the town square, I also tried to venture outside of my comfort zone a bit. While walking around “The Square”, I decided to apply some of the suggestions from our critique this week. I introduced myself to a few strangers and told them what I was doing with my photo project. I asked if they would mind if I took their photos and to my surprise, a few of them said yes. I made the images more straight on, with the subjects looking at the camera. Hopefully with more attempts at getting closer to my subjects, it will get easier. Looking to find new ways to add to my project and keep it fun is my goal. This week was a little more challenging for me but I’m positive that this challenge will be worth the effort.
