As I begin my quest into the December Challenge, I'm finding that I'm not only uncomfortable with portrait photography — I'm downright scared of it. I love taking photos of people, but if I have to talk to them and tell them how to act or pose, I freak out and start losing my photography-mojo. Hopefully by the end of this month my fears will have dissolved.
This got me thinking — How many other photographers have a genre-fear? Is there some aspect of photography that scares you into avoiding it? I've seeded the poll with a few basic choices, but this one's open for adding your own answers if it's not in the list.
Also check out the poll results from last week “What Would You Pay for a GPS Compact Flash Card?” A quick overview shows that most people would pay $100 to $150 for one of these make-believe cards, and there were even a few willing to pay as much as $300. There's also some good discussion in the comments, so go check it out.
