How to ask members of the public for photos??

I spent an hour or so walking round town today & saw some lovely people I wanted to photograph for various reasons (interesting feature, pretty, etc.), but couldn’t get up the courage to ask them. I did ask one woman if I could photograph her dog & she was great & I did that. Any tips??

Also, how do you take candids without getting hassled??

Thanks xx

Why So Many Rejections???

I don’t understand why my work is receiving rejections, being removed from challenges, etc.?? One person kindly left a message explaining, but the others?? Who knows?? It really isn’t doing my confidence much good. I’m sure the group moderators don’t intend to crush our confidence & make us quit photography, do they? Admittedly, I’m new here & still finding my feet. Can anyone shed any light on this? Is it just a way of telling me my photography is awful???
