[1/365] My daughter's feet

January 1, 2010

 

Day one of Prject 365:2010. My daughters feet in black/white.

 

I must admit my goal till a few hours ago was to take purely portrait shots of strangers I meet during the day. Unfortunately, I failed twice in successfully approaching people today, so I will also post 'normal' shots of various things.

 

I'd love to hear some comments how other people approach people and get them to agree to the shooting. I really hurts to be rejected, but at this point I don't want to give up... not on the first day.

 

After all, this is about improving your skills. I guess we are talking both communication skills (approaching people, getting the OK to shoot, getting them to sign releases) and technical photography skills. I very much realized this today.

 

On to day 2!
