That’s good that you got an out, but there’s another way to look at it. With 6 months to prep, perhaps you should consider this a chance to expand your skill set. If you have no desire at all to shoot posed groups/portraits then it makes sense to pass, but if you’re only passing because you’re worried about screwing up then you might want to take another look at this opportunity.

There are hundreds (thousands?) of good tutorials online, and with the holidays coming up you can probably wrangle so family or friends to be test subjects in exchange for free photos.
