Recently I was being photographed by another photographer.
Photograph people and being photographed is totally different thing.
When I got the invitation for a small photo shoot session, I must admit that I really just wanted to refuse it. It’s kind of nervous, unknown, panic and it’s worse than going to a dentist. :crying: At that moment if there was a choice between go to dentist or photo shoot, I would definitely go to dentist. Really, no kidding, I was as scared as that. :fear: But another voice in my head, I have to try this, even I was afraid of being in front of camera and even I knew I would feel extremely uncomfortable.
I had to try this for all my clients.
Last time I was being photographed was like…..what?…10 years ago? That was with someone I trusted. In between this 10 years time, I only have self-portraits which I am quite happy about the results. I know how to photograph people and I am comfortable with myself. So self-portratis has been an on going fun project. :run: Through this project, I also become a better photographer but I didn’t realize how people can be so nervous about a photo shoot until I had my photo taken by other photographer.
The good thing is I have always got positive feedback from my clients. They had good time and felt relaxed with me. And very happy with the result.
It’s a blessing to be able to make people happy, through the way I work. :happy:
