Have you ever had family members try to tell you how to run your business, my mother assists me at some events and she tries to take over everything
I’ve had ppl try to tell me how to run my business before but the thing is, you’ve got to assertively, but respectfully, let them know that it’s your business. Tell them that you respect their opinions & viewpoint but this is what you want to do & how you’re gonna do it
Since it’s your mom, more than likely she’s looking out for your best interest. And to be honest, she may even be doing you a favor (or possibly making better decisions). This is where the respect portion comes in to play. Let her know that you value her help but you want to handle things differently.
(Just make sure that your decision is the right one or you’re gonna be hearing a lot of “I told you so’s” from mom)
Is it weird asking people to take a picture of them? what do you do if they say no?
Lol I won’t lie, I’m kinda shy so I was really nervous when I first started asking people if I could photograph them. However, the more that I did it, the easier it was for me approach people. Worse comes to worst, you get a “no”…just tell them “okay, well thank you anyway” & move on to the next one lol There’s always gonna be the possibility of a “no”, but if you don’t ask then you’ve already gotten a “no” without even trying.
As a photographer, are you allowed to take pictures anywhere or do you need permission?
Lol this is actually a pretty good & very important question.
Now as a photographer, your goal is to photograph a subject (whether it may be a person or object) and make it look interesting. However, (and im assuming that by asking this question, you’re either a photographer or interested in the craft), you WILL be faced with moments where somebody will tell you that you’re not allowed to photograph in certain areas. Most places that are opened to the public, such as parks, museums, etc. are completely available for photography unless stated otherwise. Now when photographing inside an establishment, there’s always a chance that you may be told by an employee (or manager) that you’re not allowed to photograph in the premises.
So to sum it all up:
Public Places are good. If you want to photograph in an establishment (such as a hotel lobby), then make sure that you have permission. Otherwise, you’re gonna feel pretty embarrassed when you’re in the middle of a shoot and the manager tells you to leave
