Default Shooting for fun and free

So, Im starting off all free, I want to just have fun with no obligation to the customer. It really will be almost all candids, just walking around NYC and my local towns and either doing straight out candids, or maybe asking people if I can take their picture for a project.

Anyway, here is my idea for it:

- When people (tourists) ask for people to hold their camera and take their shot, instead I will use my own camera and take a bunch of pictures of them in different poses. Then I will give them my card and get their email. Afterwards, I will edit their photos and send them to them by email, with a small watermark on it to show where they got it. Watermark can be removed if requested for free.

- Also doing the $2 idea from Flickr, where I will pay someone $2 if I really like something about them, and take their portrait.

Gotta start somewhere! And for free, but donations are gladly accepted.

There are still tourists who will hand their cameras to a stranger? In NYC? People are amazing!

Not really in the middle of NYC, more like the boardwalks and touristy areas. Central Park is full of them. Doing a run though the major pathways last year, I think I got stopped around 25 times by people.
