Hanoi, 2017

Fresh out of the HAPTIC LAB of STREET NOTES MOBILE EDITION:

1. Coffee shop project:

Spend an entire day in a coffee shop. Make photos of strangers, either with permission or without permission. The first photo I showed you in Hanoi (top of this post) was made at a coffee shop.

I was sitting enjoying a black coffee, and I saw this woman coming in and out of the doors. I waited before the decisive moment, and got this shot.

Why: Being lazy can be a good thing as a photographer. Just turn off your phone, not to get distracted.

2. Pomodoro street photography assignment

Set your phone to airplane mode, and set the timer for 25 minutes.

Tip: Show your subject their photo on your LCD screen

For 25 minutes, you must shoot at least 100 photos.

Then, take a 5 minute break, and review your photos. Choose your 1 favorite photo and share it to social media.

Then rinse and repeat as many times as you would like.

3. Selfie project

ERICKIM x ERICKIMSTRAP

Shoot selfies of yourself (with the front facing camera) in the streets. Find simple backgrounds, and simulate the minimalist portraits of Richard Avedon.

Why: To build your confidence being on the other side of the camera. You can’t have the courage to shoot others, if you cannot shoot yourself.

Honor thy selfie.

BE STRONG,
ERIC
