12. FOCUS ON THE CONNECTION

In fashion and beauty, the connection is everything. Once you’ve mastered your settings, lighting, and composition, then it is time to focus on getting great energy out of your subject. Always have music playing and give them tons of positive feedback as you shoot. This will help you bring out your subject’s real raw personality and confidence. If your subject leaves the shoot more confident than when they arrived, you’ve done your job as a photographer. When you create a great experience for your clients, they are much more likely to love the images and keep hiring you back! Happy shooting!
