Oh yes - clever stuff
Thanks AllanThey definitely fit the theme nice attention to detail too
Thank you Bebop, I have considered a panel of these but I am running out of shapes that are realistically achievable with the fruit.I love these. Definitely on theme and I think you're on your way to producing a project of fruit shapes for exhibition or book.
Thank youOh yes - clever stuff
Thanks Chris, glad the toys one raised a laugh.Toy's it made me chuckle Iain
Artificial, great reflections
Patterns, nicely symmetrical, no argument from me as to the "validity"
Thank you helen.I love the triptych version.. fits the theme for me as they all create a pattern.
Thanks Pete.Hi Iain
I like the way the water drop adds another layer of upClose.
Thank you Helen,A really interesting shot in the way the water magnifies and enhances the colour. Looks good
Thank you Bebop.I really like this Up Close shot. The leaf alone works really well, but the water droplet is an added bonus, taking us even closer in.
Thanks Kell,These are great. I've often been tempted by these 100 Strangers projects to start one myself - mostly to encourage me to speak to people as I'm far too shy to do it right now.
Does it get any easier?
Thanks Bebop.Both are lovely portraits, nicely captured. In each one you have colour palettes that suit your subject.
The few personal details really add to it. I had no idea that in these stranger projects, you actually gleaned some personal details.
Yes I can imagine it adds a whole other dimension to the project. You must have the knack for getting them to feel at ease such that they share these snippets. I’m quite outgoing, but I would find it difficult to approach strangers. I guess it would be easier if I could tell them it was a project, but I’d still find it a bit stressful.Thanks Bebop.
Linda's portrait was a little more considered in that I found a background I wanted to use and waited a short while until someone came along.
Linda's clothing was what caught my eye thinking it would match the background.
Eliza's portrait was very much an impromptu location. Being on the bridge, there wasn't really much choice in background haha.
The 'personal' details are really what makes this project for me. Through shooting it for a number of years I have heard some really interesting stories from strangers. Things they have told me I would never have the nerve to ask them, it has been entirely voluntary on their behalf.
Thank you Bee. I've had a bit of practice over the years shooting my 100 strangers project.Yes I can imagine it adds a whole other dimension to the project. You must have the knack for getting them to feel at ease such that they share these snippets. I’m quite outgoing, but I would find it difficult to approach strangers.

Thank you Dave, glad you can see the theme in the images, albeit with a little explanation and a sprinkling of shoehornLove these two images Iain and can see where you'r coming from for the theme, my thoughts are for a people image too as it's personal to me as well.
Thanks Ian, I do enjoy hearing people's story because I'm a nosey buggerI think these are excellent portraits Iain. Just love the attention to detail you put into the backgrounds which compliment the portraits so nicely. The sentence or two that you add about each subject also brings the project to life and gives us a bit more information about the people.
Thank you Dominic, I have a penchant for a vanishing point background and seek to use it whenever I can in the portraits to try and keep the aesthetic.Up close
Love the he light and shadows across the leaf, good details too.
I admire anybody that can go up to strangers and ask to photograph them. It is soooo way out of my comfort zone (I don't even like photographing people I know).
I seen your 100 strangers before and really like that they're not just a head shot, that you try and get a bit of the environment in as well. These two are great.
Thanks Chris, much appreciated.Up to your usual standards Iain
I do, as you realise, I follow your 100 strangers on FB.
I wouldn't have the courage to do so myself though.
Thanks Martin, these are the first strangers portraits I have shot in a long while. it was good to resurrect the project although it was a little daunting at first not having done it in such a long time.I have nothing to add that hasn't already been said. I do love your Stranger photos as I don't see them that often because I do not partake of Faceache so only get to see the odd one on this forum. Keep up the good work.
Thanks Allan, I have had each of the 3 rounds of 100 strangers printed into books as a keepsake, I have also had 3 poster sized prints made of the completed rounds made and had a few of the portraits printed for competitions etc. None of which have seen the light of day in a few yearsI remember you starting this a long time ago and what separates it from other street photography is the small piece of information about each person it does make the image.
What have you done with the other 300 images did you get it printed? I seem to remember something happening along those lines.
Thanks Dave.WOW - lovely shots and great montages!
Thanks Tim, yes, right place, right timeGreat shot. Maybe opportune to have the wobbly bridge availabel as the background, but it works, especially with the grey tones in the background contrasting with her colourful top and hair.
Cheers Nick, such kind comments, much appreciated.A couple of great shots!
I've been looking at these on Flickr since you started putting them up, and they're brilliant. The girl with the red hat and purple hair against the red telephone boxes blew me away when I first saw it, probably my favourite portrait ever.
Thanks Helen, I started the 100 strangers project specifically to get out of my comfort zone and shoot more people photography. It kinda took over for a while haha.This is fascinating and I really admire your consistency in the project. The images and great and the additional info really brings the person to life even more.
I'm not great at approaching people, although I assume it gets easier as time goes by. I mainly concentrate on landscape so I am usually confronted with inanimate objects - which totally suits me
Thanks Stuart.Up close
Great use of the hand gel, hopefully it's something that will become less common as we make faltering steps out of the pandemic. Lots of lovely details
Really interesting portraits and the whole stranger project in general. Do you also take street photography? The only time I have asked a stranger if I take their photo I was away from home, possibly it felt less intimidating that way.
