@EMF, this industry is wrought with people who think they are more important than they actually are.

. you took the bad news well, which is really promising for you. The best thing to do is not focus on the negative and do exactly what you plan on doing. Are you a girl or a guy? Girls tend to be able to approach other girls and guys very easily for a photo. Women are less threatening. Guys walking up to a girl asking for a portrait is a little sketchy. I think it’s a little unfair because I often photograph people. The difference is, I rarely ask, which is even sketchier. I can’t stand posey and find more often than not that the moment is lost in that short time between when you notice the girl and when you stop to ask. So my suggestion is to find girls on the street and depending on your style, snap away or stop to ask.
