How to Relax in Front of the Camera

If you have a photoshoot coming up, there are many factors you need to keep in mind—your wardrobe, how you’re going to do your hair, the location—the list is endless. One thing you may not be thinking about right now is how to relax in front of the camera…but once that camera comes out and starts pointing at you, chances are it will be all you can think of!

Read on for a few tips on how to be relaxed in front of the camera during your portraits or other photoshoot.

Choose the Right Photographer

The first step to being relaxed during a shoot is to select a professional photographer who you like and feel comfortable around (and whose portfolio you adore, obviously). If you choose someone who rubs you the wrong way or makes you feel uncomfortable, then you’re not going to be able to fully relax when the day of your photoshoot arrives and the camera’s pointed right at you.

Pretend the Camera Isn’t There

This tip is for those candid photoshoots you’re a part of. Simply try to forget that the camera is even there, and focus on having fun. Of course, this would be impossible to do if you’re sitting for portraits and need to stare at the lens. But for more candid photographs, this is a great way to try to relax.

Listen to Your Photographer’s Cues

Be honest with your photographer, and let them know if you’re nervous in front of the camera. If they’re experienced and a quality, professional photographer, then they’ll be able to give you some tips on how to get rid of those photoshoot jitters.

From the initial meeting to communication, to the wedding, everything was wonderful. Deevo has a quirky personality and it made the whole experience better. My husband didn't really like taking pictures, but I think he enjoyed it because of Deevo.
