I was inspired by mdgrwl's stranger project to start my own project. I have really been wanting to work on my natural/available light skills. So, I am shooting some random people, or people I deal with that have very characteristic faces.

ETA: it's my Photo-a-day(ish) project because I can't always shoot everyday.

Here are my 1st 6 images from this project:

5. I was exploring an old building that is going to be a great grungy shoot location. The only light here (for 2 floors) is the one behind me in the photo. This is my reflection in a FILTHY window. I saw this a good opportunity to get a self-portrait and work on my available light skills.

ETA: I reworked #6. A little heavier contrast:

Good concept. Sparta one could use a little more range to it, make it pop a little more and it would be sweet.
