At last, project came to an end. The project is an attempt to step out of my comfort zone and into a new level of portrait photography by meeting and photographing portraits of strangers, in fact I met more than 100 strangers these days, but there was no time to update regularly. Approaching strangers is not at all easy task; which gave lot of confident, commitment, business, improved portrait and lighting skill, and got new friends ,it helped me to rebuild the self-confidence and started focusing myself in portrait photography, even unknown people approached through Facebook and shown interest to take part in the project. I must say my portrait photography has improved a great deal. I started a group in Facebook and invited many of them to join, Tom Brouns with the great enthusiasm started the project sincerely and completed the project you can see his work here The Stranger project , hope Tom learned and experienced a lot in this project. You can see Tom’s work here and many are still working on this in the group. I’m glad to inspire others with this project.

This project has given me lot of opportunity to learn, how to overcome the fear and anxiety , several times I got nasty rejection and I learned how to overcome that, coach the people for poses, dealing with the language barrier and etc…. I am seriously venturing into portraiture.Thank you for participating in this project.

Thinking for another project ………………..Suggest me to start with?
