I’ve been kicking around the idea of doing a Tuesday Tips post and would help both photographers and their subjects/models. But I’ve been to worried about having enough information to make it worth while for my readers. Then it dawned on me that I can count my readers on one hand, so if I’m a little short on information it is not really going upset that many people. And who knows by doing a couple of weekly tips I may increase my readership and I might have to use both hands to count them.
Tip for the photographer behind the camera:
Don’t hide behind you camera.
Your subject doesn’t always want to see just one side of your face of a big camera lens. If that is all they wanted they could just hope into a photo-booth and smile to the machine.
Tip for the model in front of the camera:
Relax and enjoy watching the crazy person with the camera.
If you really want to drive the photographer crazy sit as stiff as you can for at least three shots. I mean keep you arms straight by your side and your legs together with knees and ankles touching. No seriously take a deep breath and enjoy the session.
