Hi all, Im fairly new to DSLR's, I shot film a long time ago but have been on a 25 year hiatus from photography. I was looking for a general consensus on the benefits of going to a paid photoshoot.
My model doesnt have to be beautiful as Im old enough to find beauty in everything. But the problem is, I'm extremely shy, I really have a hard time approaching a stranger and asking to take their photo.
Would a paid shoot be beneficial for me in regards to gaining knowledge and confidence?
I'm not really "building" a portfolio, yet photographing people is where my interests lie.
Also, are there certain promoters here that are better than others as far as accommodating amateurs?
Thanks in advance for advice
