I'm brand new to this board and had a couple of questions to ask. I mostly enjoy photographing children and want to start putting my portflio together. I have a couple of children in mind that I'd like to photograph, what should my approach be? What are the legal issues I need to consider? Do I need to have the parents sign some kind of consent form in order to display the pictures in my portfilio? How does it work w/ models when you're just starting out? This would be freebie stuff initially. It's been 2 years since I've been in school(had a baby) and I don't remember this information. Is there a good book out there someone can recommend related to the business aspect of this field?
Also, what is FTP? I've heard it mentioned on a couple of the previous posts. I have someone in another state that wants me to restore an old photo for them and I'm wondering how I will get their precious photo into my computer??? I'm really nervous about them mailing it to me. What other options are there?
Thanks in advance
