I recently went on a studio lighting course as I wanted to expand on and hopefully improve on my photography. While I loved the workshop It's left me wanting to play around with different lighting setups just to see what happens. Here is where I seem to be having a bit of an issue (well for me anyway).
As I'm a newbie to the studio I'm struggling with the idea of asking someone to pose for me. While I realise that there are a number of models who are willing to trade their time in exchange for prints, given that I'm new to the studio and just playing around, I would feel like i was wasting their time.
So my question is, for those of you who have moved into studio work, when you first started how did you get your first models? I'd ask some of my family but they are some of the most photo phobic people on the planet...
thanks in advance..
