The more I make portraits for clients the more I tune in to how people feel about themselves. This includes those times when I take on myself. I will want to try out a new thought with lighting or backdrop and have no model available; but won't want to be my own "model". Fortunately for me my job supersedes my self confidence and 8 times out of 10 the photographer in me wins.
I feel silly ~ I laugh ~ I get uncomfortable ~ I get comfortable ~ these are the things I want my clients to feel when I'm making their portraits. The last thing I want them to think about is "can you photoshop ________ out" (insert least favorite body part/s or facial feature/s)
~ Laugh ~ Be Silly ~
~ Allow your inner self to take center stage ~
~ your outer self is the under study ~
Try looking at your laugh lines in a new light….and have a chuckle or two!
