    Outside of your comfort zone - what would you like to try!

    OK, we have the comfort zone thread…..so what is outside your comfort zone that you would really like to try?

    For me, its models, in particular ‘Pin Up’ style photography. Of late, I have found myself seeking out the ‘Kustom Kulture’ and Hot Rod scene – maybe it’s a bit of a thing at the moment, but I really like the ‘look’.

    Yes, I have done people photography in the past, but its been people I know and in their own environment. I would really like to be able to try working with a model in the styles above – my thing is I get a cold shiver thinking about having to talk and deal with someone in that scenario….

    Oh well, maybe one day I’ll get the courage.

    Actually I would like to try Pin Up's too 1940's-50's style stuff but, people photography is not something that I feel I'm good at. Also like you I wouldn't evven begin to know how to approach someone about modeling for such photo's.

    Believe it or not, I'm trying to do 'artsy' stuff. Portraits are over rated and I'm SO tired of doing them.

    I think I'd like to try flying an ultralight plane and shooting from above.

    I'd love to do one of those 100 Strangers projects. Walking up to a random person on the street and asking them if I can take their picture terrifies me for some reason. I've done it before but I don't know what my deal with it is.

    I actually started doing it in Sept/Oct last year - I got 3 photos in and haven't gotten any further.
