I finished my second assignment for ISPYCINCY on Sunday. I was to go to a heavy foot traffic area such as Fountain Square in Downtown Cincinnati or the Hyde Park area and take photographs of stylish/interesting looking people and ask them a series of questions.
I began in Hyde Park (there are a lot of upscale shops and restaurants in the area) and based on past experience, knew that most everyone would be a willing participant! Here are a few of them…
I really like this girl’s style. Casual and sporty…
I was to collect their name, occupation, where they would like to be if they could be anywhere else in the world at that moment, what they most liked about Cincinnati, who or what inspired their fashion style, and if they had made a New Year’s resolution, what it was.
This lady is pregnant and was so cute. She said she just had her hair done!
Everyone wanted to smile, which is a normal reaction when you’re having your photograph taken, but I also wanted to capture some other emotions or looks. This guy (he’s a physician) didn’t smile for his second photo. He was genuinely surprised when I told him he looked stylish. He said some of the people he works with tease him for not having style. (They’re probably just jealous!)
Love the blue and the stripes!
Most people are so interesting and friendly!
