There is a problem You have always dreamed of lively, spontaneous photos, filled with sincere emotions and happy smiles, but when you find yourself in front of the camera, you are immediately confused and do not know how to stand and where to look? Many couples, without the experience of shootings, are embarrassed to express their feelings at the camera's sight, and as a result get photos with stretched smiles and unnatural postures. How to overcome excitement and constraint during a photo shoot?
There is a solution! The secret of the successful photoshoot is in the proper preparation. Here are a few ideas to help you feel more confident in front of the camera:
1. DISCUSS THE SHOOTING WITH YOUR PARTNER It often happens that a girl is more open in front of the camera than a man, who can be hard to express his feelings in public. To avoid this and look harmonious and natural on the day of the photo shoot, discuss the shooting format with the your boyfriend in advance, ask if he has any wishes and ideas, show him a selection of poses for a photo shoot that you would like to repeat in your shooting.
2. ... AND WITH A PHOTOTOGRAPHER The specialist must understand what result you are waiting for. Explain to him the desired concept, prepare a list of desired shots, without which you can not imagine your family photo album. Surely you have already studied his portfolio and some of the shootings (or individual shots) you especially liked - show them to the photographer as an example of what you want to get in the end.
Do not ask the photographer to copy the style of another specialist, it is better to immediately select the professional, who works in the style you need.
3. BE YOURSELF Perhaps this is the most difficult part of the shooting - to smile sincerely and behave naturally, when the question “how do I look from the outside?” constantly turns in your mind. But an insincere smile spoils even the most beautiful image.
Do not try to portray languid looks and melancholic mood, if you are happy and cheerful, and vice versa, if you are a calm and restrained couple, you do not have to jump and dance, because “everyone does this”.
4. CONCENTRATE ON EACH OTHER Of course, during a photo shoot it is quite difficult to imagine that you and your beloved are only two, but try to throw out doubts and fears from your mind, look into each other’s eyes and hold hands - for a moment the world around will really cease to exist. At this very moment the photographer will take those pics, that will decorate your family photo album.
Cuddle, kiss, dance, talk about everything in the world and enjoy every second - and you will not notice how the photo shoot flew, and you never once asked the photographer "How should I stand and where should I look?".
