I think I have good idea for one of the challenges, but can't find anyone willing to be the "models." This one wouldn't even involve being identified, really, and is not difficult. How do you all find subjects willing to let you use them for challenges?

Get them drunk or a huge bag of money. :P Very good question. Some people are just lucky to have willing models.

I just keep calling my brother until he comes over, so I will leave him alone. :-)

My main models are my husband and my two dogs. They simply have no choice in the matter!

When I was taking a photography class, I just asked people straight out - told them I had a project for photo class, and would they be my model. Most said yes!

I love candid shots: my surroundings, people around me, things I see in the streets, etc.

breed :)

I have two kids and I own their copyright til they're 18. Plus, all my friends are getting used to me bringing my camera everywhere and shooting everything we do.

And if you wanna get 'em nekkid, you gotta get 'em drunk ;-)

edit: not the kids, the friends!

the best way to win some one over, is to show them your work, when they see you have a good eye, they will be more willing.
