I want to share with you a video from Peter Hurley I just came across what is not just interesting for you as a photographer but foremost for the people in front of the camera.
You don’t even need to be an actor or any other kind of artist who wants his/her photograph taken to learn from this. The most important thing for me here is this: be coachable.
It can be a heck of extra work if you are not coachable or not able to follow directions. Of course this can be a result of not having the right chemistry with the photographer. On the other hand this can be a eye opener for you if you see photography just as hitting some buttons on a camera.
