Photo Tip: Don’t be afraid to photograph people

Many photographers are hesitant to photograph people. I understand the reasons, but with the right approach, most people are honored when I ask to make their picture. Not because it is me asking but because I take the time to talk to them. I almost always let them know who I am and why I want a picture of them. I’ve found few people turn me down when I say “You have a great looking face.” It is a good line that isn’t too creepy and makes people feel comfortable with me sticking a camera in their face. When I try to sneak photos is when they get nervous, I only do that when I’m shooting hard news. So talk to people, many times the conversation is better than the photo.
