I recently blogged about a photographer called Brandon Stanton. He has a blog called Humans of New York, on which he take photos of people on the streets of New York, and asks them about themselves, and their life. Take a read of that post here.
Today a video popped up on my news feed, a segment from a lecture he gave at a university in Dublin, about how he approaches strangers, the importance of helping people feel at ease and how you can draw the most and best out of people in a loving, caring way. Interesting video, worth 15 minutes if you have it 🙂
At church most weeks I'm approaching strangers who are first-time visitors to our church. Stuff like this video is really helpful in helping me get better at it, maybe it's helpful for you too.
