I’ve made it three weeks now with these tips
Tip for the photographer behind the camera:
This tip is kind of connected to the first tip, not hiding behind the camera, the key to making a great portrait of someone is to help them feel more comfortable in front of the camera. By taking the time to talk your subject it helps to break that awkward wall that is but between the photographer and the subject by the camera. It does not have to be a deep conversation it needs to be a genuine.
Tip for the model in front of the camera:
I know this week’s tips are the same for both sides of the camera but I feel that talking is an importing part of photography.
Talking gives both the photographer and the subject a chance to get to know each other, have fun, and maybe even make and new friend. I like to think that everyone I have photographed is a friend by the time the session is over.
