    I'm interested in doing some portraits and/or modeling. However I'm not too interested in for example hiring a professional model. How is the best way to go about asking people to take pictures or whatever? Also any other tips in portraiture would be much appreciated.

    When I have taken portraits, I usually just ask some friends. It's great for practice.

    Although, I am fortunate to have some seriously drop-dead gorgeous friends....for example:

    These guys were all just my friends (and one was myself). It worked out nicely in the end.

    Most people would LOVE to have their picture taken *properly*, so they'll most likely say yes. And the best thing - it's free!

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    You could ask aspiring models to pose for you on a TFP basis. Time For Prints. You shoot, they pose, and you both get prints that can add to your portfolios.
