You have put feelers out about all sides of photography; trying to find your comfort zone/interest, whatever you call it, and decided on portraiture.
Have you actually got any experience at all with portrait photography?
Before starting with models, have you tried photographing the people around you?
Relatives, colleagues, strangers in the street?
From my housewifely, amateur point of view, this seems a good start.
I have no experience, I'm just starting.
I have a message on facebook. but haven't had any success. Maybe I should message them individually. Not sure yet.
I wouldn't take photos of 'strangers on the street'.....not my cup-of-tea.
I'm thinking about doing a course. But need to find one first.
I'll be photographing someone when they're better. And I have put an ad on Gumtree and Vivastreet website. I've had 2 replies so far.
