Last night my wife and I went to the park by us (we dont have a lot in Vegas) just to try out my new Xsi, the park is pretty with a lake and plenty of nature. We got to the park just before sunset and the sky was a gorgeous color at this point. We went for a walk round and there was a dad showing his son how to fish, and immediately i thought wow what a nice shot that would be. But i just couldnt muster up the courage to ask them if he minded if i took a picture of them. It would have been perfect the light was just right and the sunset was exactly behind them. But i bottled it and walked off.
Then we walked further down and there was a girl fishing and her silhouette against the sunset and the lake was again stunning, but i just couldnt ask her in fear of being told no, or that i was a weirdo.
I didnt get any good shots in the end, a few ideas but no good shots, just so you can see an idea of the colors at the time here is one shot, im not claiming it to be good but i wanted you to see the colors..
so what im looking for is for some advice in situations like these please
