Shoot the In-Between, A Portrait Photography How-to

My photography teacher over the winter, Peter C. Cook, told us, his students, that some of the best photos are those that were taken when the model least expected it. He said that the model can go “stiff after some time, especially when your model gets tired. When such a thing happens, the photos that will come out won't be as good.


So, as Peter told us, have a break, speak with the model, establish a rapport. And while relaxing you will still be able to get some awesome shots. This was proven here with our model Rebecca.

So, don't just get directed and choreographed photos of your model. Also shoot the in-between.
