Can I take your picture?

As an amateur photographer, I really like macro settings, short focal points and people portraits.  My problem is, how do you ask someone to take their photo and then have them look natural again for your photos?  Fashion blogs or photoblogs like The Sartorialist take great photos of people who look so natural. Is it just that his targets WANT to be photographed?  That they're prepared?  Can someone offer advice on how to go about this?

  1. Hi Kristen,
    I'm big fan of portrait pictures, and have taken here in Singapore recently a class - was a good 2x3h class to learn about the techniques and get some practical training.
    All the best
