Do you struggle to get comfortable in front of the camera? Would you like to feel more natural when posing for photos?
It’s not easy to model. Seriously.
Jen & I know because we recently did a photo shoot for our passion project, Socialmerk.
We had a ton of fun shooting with Austin Trainor in downtown Buffalo.
While we were shooting, we were laughing and having a blast and so I busted out my phone to start recording.
Because you guys know by now that when Jen and I are together, we’re always having a good time.
You also know that we’re working hard on our YouTube channel, which we give an update about in the vlog.
How To Get Comfortable On Camera:
Probably one of the most important things is to work with someone that you know, like and trust.
This is especially true if it’s your first time modeling.
If you’re new to modeling and posing for photos, you want to be sure that you’re working with someone that makes you feel comfortable.
If you’re uncomfortable, it’s going to show through in the photos. The more comfortable you are, the more you’re going to show up as your authentic self.
People want to see you shine in your photos, so getting into a positive and confident headspace is critical.
I like to listen to dance jams and music that pumps me up whenever I’m on my way to a photo shoot.
Before a photo shoot, I’ll do my hair and makeup and pick out an outfit that I feel comfortable and confident in.
When you make yourself look good, you feel good.
A good outfit makes you more confident, and your confidence comes through the photos too!
Austin mentions the importance of understanding your lighting in any situation so that you know how to best work with the models in the environment you’re shooting.
When it comes down to it, confidence is critical to having a great photo shoot.
If you want to feel like America’s Next Top Model during your next photo shoot, put on your best outfit, pump those dance jams and grab a friend!
