This picture is #47 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at the 100 Strangers Flickr Group page

I’ve been really busy lately and haven’t been able to focus on photographing strangers. But from mid week I’ve been watching the weather forecast and planning for a good lunch break on Friday. I recently purchased a small reflector, inspired by R C Hill’s excellent blog post (blog.rchillphotography.com/post/2011/06/04/Using-a-reflec…). Today was the perfect day to try it with the 12 o’clock autumn sun shinning harsh and bright.
I spotted two girls chatting in a park near where I work and they kindly agreed to pose after I explained the project.
Now I did it again, after checking and repeating their names, I went straight on to photograph some more strangers and by the time I’d finished I’d completely forgotten the names of the first two. So lovely stranger, I hope you like the picture, I’m very happy with the way it turned out (and will post your friend tomorrow) and if you see this please pop me an email or comment on here and remind me of your name.

  1. Thanks all, I’m happy with this one. My main ambition was to try out the reflector and I think it worked.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/haggisandchips/] I’m not sure about the green flash. It doesn’t appear on other pictures of her but it does on one of those of her friend. I wonder if it is flare of some dust on the lense or something. I was going to clone it out but then decided I like it.

  2. Love the sun shining down and her glasses all lit up. I also have bought a reflector recently but thought I might try it on some friends first so I don’t look like a complete amateur in front of strangers. So bravely done!!!
