I have a couple of projects that seem to be getting nowhere. I thought I had some leads, but no go just yet. I'll keep trying, but it's possible both concepts are a little too abstract to find ready and willing subjects as quickly as I had thought that I would - one, which I've posted about before, centers on bikers with disabilities, and the other would focus on women with tattoos in the workplace (nurses, office workers, etc., typically asked to cover up their ink at work). I need a little help here. How do I go about finding people? Let's say it's for a less unusual project, though I tend to think off the beaten path sometimes. Do you go to craigslist? (Tried it.) Subject-specific forums? (Tried it.) Put an ad in the paper? (Not tried yet.) Talk to people you know that may know the right persons? (Tried it.) I can't offer money, only prints. Is this an issue? I need a simple model release signed as well, though the few conversations have rarely gotten that far. Is that scaring people off? What is your approach? I know it doesn't help that I don't have too much relevant work on my site. I've thought of photographing friends the same way I would approach one of my stories, but they're all mostly hams when a camera is around anyway, lol. (Especially mine.) Any help would be greatly appreciated. Other ideas are churning around in my head, and I'd really like to get some stuff started. This is really the only thing inspiring me to pick up a camera right now, and I'm really excited about the whole notion.
