For photographers who like to shoot portraits, a big misunderstanding when learning to shoot is that they only focus on the technology of shooting and forget to learn how to communicate with the subject. Portrait photography is different from scenery or scenery, the subject of portrait photography needs emotional adjustment very much, only when the model emotion is in place, the work can be outstanding.

How to communicate with the subject has become a threshold between beginners in portrait photography and excellent portrait photographers. Only by trying to make the subject more natural, the picture will be better.

First of all, many photographers are not all professional models, even if they are looking forward to being photographed, but they are more or less nervous. At this time, the photographer's characters are trying to help them relax, chat with them, or tell a few humorous jokes, which can liven up the atmosphere of the scene all of a sudden, and can be captured when the models show a heartfelt smile.

If you want to capture a model's smile, the timing of focus is very important. We recommend using the eye recognition function of Nikon camera. Take Nikon Z 7 as an example, after turning on this function, the camera will real-time detect the eye position of the model in the picture and focus it. At the same time, the photographer can also choose the left eye or the right eye. When the model expression is in place, it can be photographed in a moment.

In many cases, photographers and models are novice, and they may not know what kind of pose to pose. Photographers should not just verbally direct models and demonstrate in person, so that models can accurately understand the photographer's intentions. at the same time, it can also promote the atmosphere of the scene, making the models more relaxed and comfortable.

When shooting, although photographers and models are novice, as photographers, they should realize that they are the leader of the shooting, take the initiative to mobilize the emotions of the models, and give the models some encouragement when shooting, which will make the shooting more smooth.
