I read an article on Digital Photography School titled "Tips for Creating Portraits of Strangers." This is a topic I feel passionate about as I often taken pictures of the people I meet on mission trips and this is the profession of the Master Photographer I previously researched, Esther Havens. In Yasser Alaa Mobarak's intriguing article, he suggests first talking to the people you desire to photograph. When talking with new people, it is important to share with them your purpose for visiting them and your intentions with their photograph. When photographing strangers, Mobarak also points out that it is important to pose your subjects naturally and to focus on capturing candid photos. If the person is comfortable enough, it is suggested that you scope out a new background from the area you are in that encompasses the culture and environment. Incorporating these new aspects into your portraits should overall compliment the subject. Finally, this article has repeatedly shared the importance of kindness and smiling when photographing strangers.
