Each weekend, I will post the assignment here. During the week, complete the assignment and upload your 1-3 best photos from the week to this thread. Feel free to add your own reflections on the assignment: What were your challenges and successes? Each photo you upload, you must provide constructive critique on 3 other photos uploaded. At the end of the week on Sunday (Vietnam time), Eric and I will choose our favorite images and explain why.
HAVE FUN! Love, Cindy & Eric
P.S. Since we’re just starting off STREET CLUB, we thought it would be good for everyone to get another week of working on taking photos and asking people for permission to build up confidence talking to strangers.
2. TEN NO’S ASSIGNMENT
Ask people permission to take their portrait and you will try to purposefully get “10 no’s” as quickly as possible.
This assignment is actually an off-shoot of the previous “5 yes, 5 no” assignment– but it really gets into the meat of the concept. By seeking to get rejected, you will become fearless. Furthermore, when doing this assignment try to reword your phrasing to purposefully get people to say “no.” Then based on how people react, you can start to understand what type of phrasing elicits a negative response. Then you can start changing your phrasing to get people to say “yes.”
1. Was getting a ‘no’ as scary as you thought it was?
2. Were there some people who you were certain would say ‘no’ but ended up saying ‘yes’ instead?
3. How did this assignment challenge the way you stereotype people based on their appearance or clothing?
