This is week number five. I’m having a harder time coming up with tips for in front of the camera than I thought.
Tip for the photographer behind the camera:
Know your gear.
Fumbling with your camera and lights while the model is waiting on the other side of the camera is not going to make a very good impression. It will also cause your credibility as a professional to drop very quickly. If your subject has even the smallest amount of nervousness it will be increased exponentially.
Tip for the model in front of the camera:
Feel free to tell the photographer what you have in mind for the photographs. You may have already talked a little about what you wanted or had in mind before the photo session. But there may be some thing or someplace during the session that sparks an idea. By keeping a good line of communication between photographer and model it will help the creativity flow and grow, resulting in some great photos that really bring out who you are.
