I'm getting more into people photography of one sort or another. I even joined Model Mayhem.
But I am a little tentative (shy) of actually doing casting call to move ahead with models other than my wife and willing friends.
So, I was wondering who here has been involved with using models other than friends and relatives?
I know there are several model/photographer sites (Purestorm I have heard of as well), and what are your experiences there as well?
The main issue holding me back is that I am not a great people person to begin with. Plus I would want to be prepared for several looks as that seems to be the norm. So what constitutes a 'look' and how different does another 'look' have to be to be considered 'another look'?
Plus I don't want to make a fool of myself (in my eyes as well as others). I'm not the character to throw myself in regardless, and want to be as prepared as possible.
Thanks in advance.
(bit of a coward at times, and this is one of those times)
