Well that was Scary

I took another step toward this professional photographer dream, I ordered my own business cards. EEK! It shouldn’t be that scary since once I run out I could change the design if I wanted to.  But to take that next step was a big one. I’ll get them in 2 weeks and of course will post a picture.

I of course have thought about doing this for ages, but I guess it came out of my disappointing outing today. I have taken more than enough nature photos for a long time and want to move into taking pictures of people both posed and not. So I went to a park where I knew there was a ton of kids, but I feel creepy, I mean we live in a day and age where parents are super protective of kids and some weird person with a camera sends up the alarms. So I thought maybe if I did get yelled at I could at least show them the card as someone who was legit. I would love some advice on how to move past the nervousness of approaching or just taking photos without feeling creepy.

  1. Asking for permission before shooting probably is the best approach. The other part is to have a crisp appearance – nice shirt, nice pants. It helps out of lot.

    Best of luck on your photographer dream..
