While wandering around Forest Park looking for material, I met this bluegrass trio who had performed at an event. They didn't have a business card and I didn't make a note of the group's name but they were happy to talk about what they did and let me take their picture.
I was much too shy to approach people in such situations until I took the brilliant Bobbi Lane's introduction to portrait photography workshop at the Maine Media Workshops last summer. There is a way to do this without fear or embarrassment - she taught us how. Bobbi might be the best teacher I ever had in any field. If you are interested in this sort of thing, the experience could change your life. I highly recommend it.
