A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
This weekend, spend some time outdoors, explore a new neighborhood, hone your portrait-taking skills, make strangers smile, and walk away with some amazing photographs.
Sound good? Then we’ve got the perfect photo project for you!
Armed with a camera and a few simple tools, you too can conquer the art of the impromptu street portrait. Find out how in this simple tutorial by our friend Youngna.
Sometimes you’re stuck in a photography rut, craving new subjects, new faces.
An easy solution is down on the sidewalk below you, at the turn of a corner, in any neighborhood in any city.
Just follow these simple steps!
The result? A series of great and varied portraits from the street, many great conversations, and a number of new friends. Try it out!
(Youngna’s “Candy Canes for Portraits” was done in collaboration with Zach Klein in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, December 2004)
Youngna is 23 and lives in the East Village. She likes color gradients, puns, and projects.
