Working With Props
It is a little awkward to stand in front of a bunch of people you don’t know with a camera on you. This is especially true if you feel like you have to do something interesting and look good doing it.
Providing models with something to work with will help them feel more comfortable, and take a little attention off of them.
Interacting With Your Model
A great way to take your mind off of all of the technical details around a photo shoot is to figure out everything ahead of time.
The most important thing you can do with your model is to focus on them as a person, and your relationship with them will come through in your work.
