What were you thinking...
[image] http://us.f13.yahoofs.com/bc/43db4d4....eKAEBeBgnmzms
very boring Saturday morning here
in Columbus, OH. It is very nice outside.
Question.
How do you ask/get someone to pose for you
without sounding like GWC or a pervert. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
Even though they know you are a photog
they don't take it seriously when you ask.
I always act professional and serious.
Just can't figure it out.
Any Advise?
Thanks, Steve

I've been to Columbus, Ohio several times over the years, being a fan of National Trials Raceway and the Spring Nationals drag racing event.
As for asking someone to pose for you without seeming like a GWC or a pervert, it helps to have your portfolio on hand at the time you ask. I had one experience at the beach last summer. An attractive blonde by herself in a bikini and she looked bored, so I went to her and ask if I could shoot a couple pictures of her. At first she laughed and told me that I was the second guy to ask her that. Then I showed her my portfolio and her eyes got big a saucers and wanted to know if she would get to be in my portfolio. As it turned out, she was here from Russia and ask if the photos could be emailed to her. She posed, I photographed her, ask her to join us for pizza, she went along and this is one of the two shots that I came up with.

Hey Jim,
Thanks for the advise.
I am currently working on rebuilding
my portfolio. Most of my stuff is on
film that still needs to be scanned.
Since purchasing my D-100 I just haven't
had the opportunity to shoot any glamour
style photos.
Great "Russian Blonde" shot.
NHRA rocks.
Thanks, Steve

I was walking through downtown Portland, Maine last summer during the tourist season because there are so many cool things to photograph. I happened to walk by a shop that sold things that are marine related and behind the counter was a gorgeous Asian girl. She was born and raised in Maine, as it turns out. I spotted her and so I just had to go in and talk to her. I talked and laughed with her for almost two hours before I finally asked her if she would mind me shooting some photos of her. By then, she was very comfortable with me (I'm a very lovable guy anyway) and she said absolutely. Here are some of those shots. She did this for me without seeing any of my work.







Good day!

Mike

It helps to already have a portfolio of appropriate work. The easiest way to get that is to attend some classes and workshops - not to mention the fact that classes and workshops are great ways to learn some lighting, posing, and photographic skills and to network with other photographers.
