The experiment results

At first it started off horribly, I was shy to ask people as I was handing out candy and when I did a lot of the parents gave me this strange look. I did get two parents that said yes right away, one semi reluctantly. I can understand why for the most part. I shot their pictures and they came out okay. Then something strange happened, out of no where, I had people starting to inquire "How much are pictures?" It was nice to see their face light up when I said: "Free 4x6, just takes a minute to print". So before I knew it I had a line. Things were going semi smoothly, though one family wanted EVERYONE in the shot, the background (and my one light) was more geared twards 1, 2 or maybe 3 at the max, not 5! In the end though, I got some great shots, and saw the smiles on peoples faces both while being photographed and while getting their print. One girl even took the print looked at it and giggled and gave a thanks. Really made me feel good, like I was doing some sort of good. I also had two inquires for shooting christmas pictures, family portraits and met a couple that was into video editing and web design. All in all, though no orders yet, I would consider it at least a marketing success.
