Look at these hilarious portraits by Diane Evans. I love this series! It’s quirky 70’s style mixed with the charming insanity of  competitive dog shows; what’s not to love? It seems like a huge part of being a photographer is the ability to gain access. It’s not as easy as it looks! You might have to be really charming  to get people to allow you to photograph them. Hey, but if it wasn’t hard the photos wouldn’t be so good, right? Practice in the mirror: “Hi I’m (your name here), mind if i take your photo? Why? You sir have a face that begs to be photographed…” Feel free to develop your own method:)
