dc.description.abstract Photography relies on a process of cooperation between subject and photographer. Try to establish from the outset the mutual understanding that you are working together to achieve a good result, if someone consents to pose for a portrait. Host people like the idea of a competent photographer taking pictures of them, and one can build on their underlying willingness to help. But you will have to overcome initial difficulties, to achieve a simple and natural likeness, because few people can pose formally for the camera without some tension. Largely, communication is a matter of getting people to relax in front of the camera. Try to bolster your subject's self-confidence. Be free with compliments and keep a conversation going. Hake positive suggestions instead of criticisms. If the sitter is frowning, it will disappear naturally, when a change of pose is encourage. Plan ahead, to inspire confidence in own ability, so that one do not appear undecided about backgrounds or lightning during the session. Have the equipment set up as intend to use it. Before the subject arrives, if possible, test any special lighting. The photographer will help the subject to feel comfortable and relax, by clearly establishing that he or she know what they are doing. en_US
