Learn the Correct way to Direct People for every shot
It takes much more than expensive equipment to capture someone’s personality
Understanding how to effectively bring the best out of each photo you take largely depends on how you direct your subjects to present their most appealing and flattering poses.
Effective communication makes the difference between a great shot and an average one. Understanding the psychology of each subject and how to describe the best ways to bring out their most enchanting features will separate you from your competition.
The better you can communicate with your subject, the more enjoyable the process and the easier it will be to reliably deliver emotionally-rich photos to the satisfaction of the client and yourself.
There is much more to Creating a Great Photo than simply getting your Settings Right
