Hi. I just joined the forum (so you can read my intro in the welcome section). I just recently got into photography, and created a photoblog. I've been spending a lot of time on the photoblogring, checking out other people's pics to get some ideas of good shots, places, etc. I'm fascinated with pics of people, but I'm a little intimidated about taking pictures of strangers. I was wondering how people do this. I'm not shy, so if the simple answer is just walk up and say, "Hi, mind if I take your picture?" that's fine, but then you will never get that candid shot. So, I guess my question is can y'all share how you approach people either before or after or what when it comes to taking strangers pictures. Thanks!
