Calling Cards / Business Cards

I just recently bought some cards that I can use for my 365 project. They are beyond simple, but I want to incorporate photos of strangers into my lineup. I figured the best way to do that is have a card where they can find me if they want a digital copy of their picture(s).

I know there is at least one other person shooting people very day (Hi Heidi!) But is anyone else doing a similar project or handing out cards to get more subjects for their project?

What a great idea!
I took my first couple of stranger portraits last week............it would have been great to have info like this to hand out.

Good idea. I still do not have enough guts to ask random people if I can take their portraits. On the other hand some teenager asked me to take her photo when she saw me walking around with my camera - I was too shy then even!

Try starting with people you are familiar with and work your way to strangers. I've been doing coworkers and friends. The first week was the hardest, but it is getting easier as I do more. The key is just forcing yourself to do it!

I use MOO cards. They tend to do the trick. Oddly enough no-one has ever responded. :-)

What a fantastic idea. I'm definitely envious of those of you who can do this! I had such a wonderful opportunity this afternoon too, but choked in site of how friendly the strangers I encountered were.

I use Moo cards too. Every once in a while they do a free promotion and now I have mini cards AND full size business cards. They're so pretty!

Great idea. I'm getting braver now, and this would come in handy. Did you put your email on the back?
