This was my first attempt to start asking strangers for Portrait shots. It has always been a hard thing to do for me as it’s always been a bit scary. This video was a lot of help and pushed me out today to just be confident with it.
Just be honest about why you’re taking these pictures, whether it be for college / University or just for your website and many people are happy to help when they know. Some people will straight away say no but that’s not a problem at all, just move on.
You can see some of the pictures that I took in Notting Hill below and you can see some of the edited and non-edited ones.
