For this assignment you should meet in a crowded area of campus today with their camera. You are tasked with taking at least 5 portraits of perfect strangers that you will post on flickr and you are told to keep track of their names, keep track of how many times they are turned down and even the gender of those that turned you down.
You should do this for exactly one hour. Come back to class with your pictures and your notes. Any photos you take will not be posted online to flickr (unless they say ok) and will only be seen in class.
As an incentive, the two students with the highest number of stranger portraits in an hour receives a grade bump on an assignment, or a free absense. Posing two strangers together as a couple counts as 2 strangers since it is much more difficult to do.
