Posing and Beyond: Keeping the Client
Many Photographers focus on learning how to TAKE photos, but they freeze up when they have to pose and direct their model/or client during the big photoshoot! Understanding your client's vision, prepping for your shoot properly to ensure a smooth delivery of final images and being able to communicate and work with the client, talent or both is often the key to success as a photographer.
