Sticker by eyecon

A while ago I wrote about my minicards that I always give to people on the street when I took a picture from them. If you haven’t read the story or you don´t remember, here is your chance again.

Honestly for me I´m not really afraid anymore to asked for a picture. After a while, I am getting used to it.
If we think about it what can go wrong, then it is only that you get denied but this thing happens not that often and if – whatever! Turn around and asked the next person.

But I always like the idea to give something to my “victims” in return.

Besides the minicards I always carry around, now I created some 12cm x 6cm stickers that I will also hand over after taking my shots.

I found out that people always like it very much. Maybe give it a try!

Do you have any other ideas to create little gifts – just let me know!

    You could also carry along a second, instant camera, and offer to give them a photo of themselves as a thank you. Everyone loves them.
