Trial Experiment

I’m thinking of attempting a portrait a day experiment where me and my camera will go to random spots around the Quad Cities and I will do at least one portraiture a day. Feature at least one person. I would want to gain a little info about each random person I meet and blog about them. I’m pretty excited about this experiment but I want to know what you guys think of it first!

What are some things I should have to make this trail experiment legitimate (in the eyes of the public)? I’m already bringing my pro equipment (obviously), business cards, and modeling waivers (special contracts that allow the use of images taken for professional usage). So if a random professional photographer came up to you and asked if you would like your portrait taken with the above stuff, and to be featured in a blog on their website/social media with the answers to some interesting facts about themselves like below, how would you react?

“How would you like people to see you/What would you like to be remembered for? Example: as kind, as a rebel, as a professional, as an athlete, as an artist, etc.”

“What has been/is your favorite part of life?”

“How do you define beauty? What is beautiful to you?”

“If you could do anything with your life without being confined by time, money, etc, what would you do?”

Let me know about your reactions in the comments below or even answer the questions above and attach a portrait of yourself!
