Subject Interaction Guide

Upload from March 29, 2012

People are fantastically complex and fascinating creatures—even more so when you stick them in front of a camera! Folks who are normally confident and relaxed can suddenly become nervous and unsure of what to do with their hands. It’s a great challenge, to take this awkward person and encourage them to feel comfortable and natural!

Taking great images of people requires thoughtful interaction, so here are some articles to give you some insight into photographing people, and making them look great!

One of the biggest lessons for working with people is to simply be genuinely interested in them. They are fascinating, if you just take the time to talk to them, and listen. The more you get to know someone, and show that you care about who they are, the easier it becomes to for them to open up for the camera, and for you to take a fantastic, natural portrait!
