Photo Tip No 5 - Make Me Feel Special

I want you to imagine a sign on your subject's forehead that reads:

'Make Me feel Special'

There are occasions when the subject may be lacking in confidence or shy or perhaps they believe the photographer is not really interested in them just in getting the photograph.

So go out of your way and make them feel like they are more important to you than anything else in the world for a fleeting moment.

And a warning! If you spend more time looking at your camera worrying about shutter speeds and f stops you've lost the subject and the image right there and then. Your subject is No 1.

The Fremantle International Portrait Prize offers more than $10,000 in cash and cameras. Foir full details and entry check here www.fremantleportraitprize.org.au
