A speaker in our class a few weeks back said that people skills are essential to being photojournalist. After this assignment I'm inclined to agree. It's not easy to approach strangers and ask for their names, and if you can take their photos and put them online.

I went to a wine tasting at Cork & Fork on 1522 14th Street NW, Washington, D.C., last night and took a few pictures. My task of taking close ups was made a lot easier by some friendly people, perhaps made even more so by the wine.
