How to get to know people

As I started making photos, i started talking to complete strangers in order to get the shot make some portraits. I don’t know if you could have called me insecure by that time but I definitely had not the best self esteem. I just started saying

„hey you look interesting, can I make a photo of you?“

and it got better by every new experience.

It was very interesting for me, not only for my photography. By every interaction I had the chance to get in touch with a total different person. Of course you can just talk to someone on the street, but with that reason, „taking the photo“, you are in a much better position. And beside getting to  know someone new, you have the possibility to make some great spontaneous, casual portraits.
