Before you read this, it's more of a Photo Challenge really unless you want to do portrait sketches of your subject which would be quite interesting so please continue reading.

Found this idea and thought it would be good to do something similar.

I think the 100 strangers is a bit forward for some people (like me as I'm quite shy) so this is a different version.

Take 100 photographs of at least 100 people.  They can be people you know (friends, family, school mates, work mates) or complete strangers.  

For example, as I'm going to university next weekend, I think I'm going to do this challenge with 100 people I meet there.

There can be more than one person in an image but you need to introduce the subjects and possibly get some background on them.

Try to tell a small story with each photo you take. This may be a story about the person (eg. if you've known them for years then tell a story about you both) or how you felt approaching that particular individual (if it's a stranger). You may have, for example, tried a new approach or used a new photographic technique. Try to learn something from every encounter you make if you decide to use strangers.

To do this properly, you need to get permission from your subjects before you post them on the internet and to place them in a group that people can view so easily.

cool! The 100 Strangers sounds really good too, but I, too, wouldn't have the courage to ask people myself I believe, so your variation is a good compromis! I like that and will try so too. The only Problem will be to find people who are alright with me putting a picture of them on the internet XD
