This week in photography, my class and I did a project where we took two different pictures of the same person. The first picture was before we asked them to smile, and the second picture was after. Some of these pictures are of people that I didn’t know before this project. It was challenging to go up to these new people because I had no clue who they were. Sometimes people said no, when I asked to take their picture, and then I had to move on. The rest of the project was fairly simple. These pictures help me realize that you shouldn’t judge someone on the way they look, or on their first impression. I had to apply this while taking pictures of people. In the before pictures, the person looks less friendly, and less approachable. But, in the after pictures the person looks like a very nice person. During this project, I learned that a smile can change your whole appearance for the better.
