Meet Joann! Face #4

face4, originally uploaded by Olivia Williams Photography.

I was picking up my smash cake for a photo session and started talking to Joann, I found out she once worked at the same Publix I did (Bayonette Point Publix at 19 and 52), but we didn't work there at the same time. Joann retired from Publix after 14 years, then recently started back up again at the new Publix near me.

Thank you so much Joann, you are helping me reach my goal of 100 faces.

I will be busy for the next few days so my next face should be posted after the weekend.

Meet Chris.....face 3

I saw Chris while he was taking sunset photos. I thought to myself....face #3, another photographer! I found out he once lived in Florida but he now lives in Ireland, he is here visiting with friends. I asked if he was a photographer, it turns out that photography is just a hobby of his.

Thank you Chris for allowing me to take your picture to add to my project. I hope you enjoy your vacation in Florida and have a safe trip back home.

Face Two! Meet Gary...

I noticed him when my middle child asked me what he was doing. So I told my son about the metal detector and him being only 5 he wanted to know what someone would find with a metal detector . So we went up to him to ask what has he found with his metal dector. He told us the only things he has found with his metal dector have been little match box cars and coins.

Thank you so much Gary for letting me take your picture for my project. It was nice talking to you and your wife.

Face One! The Carnaval Worker.

Originally uploaded by Olivia Williams Photography
This is my first entry. Hopefully I will be better at asking people things as this hideout and personal challenge goes on. I didn't ask him that well. The first photo on the left I took without him knowing, the middle photo is from his fun house that he was working at and the last photo of him is after I asked if I could take his picture...well sort of asked I said "Hi, can I?" then pointed at my camera then at him...he said "sure" then sat down. I didn't say much to him just took a picture said "Thanks" and left. I will try next time to find out a little more about my subject and pose them. I think I made him nervous because of the way he is holding his one hand.

About the title of this project, my personal project was always going to be 100 Faces, but thanks to Sara Patton, another hideout photographer, who came up with the name for the challenge on the hideout, I changed my personal project name to 100 Faces{telling stories}.

I started this project not only because of the hideout challenge, but because it will strengthen me as a photographer and a person.
