When taking photos of people...you need to be 80% Psychologist and 20% Photographer.
The art of helping people feel comfortable and pose in front of the camera is not easy. It takes patience, experience, and a genuine interest in helping the subject in front of your camera feel at ease. When time is very limited, that is an added challenge!
I love to shoot tethered, This means the camera is connected to a computer so you can see in real-time what your images will look like. You can then select the ones you like. These are the images that are then edited and delivered.
Helping people of different cultures feel at ease and coaching them to produce a genuine smile takes time, but worth the effort...
