During my stay in Portland, I managed to do another shoot with the daughter of my relative and her friends. They are high school seniors that are going to colleges next year. Since they are not models, I thought it would be a good idea to have a theme that they would be comfortable at.

In my experience, it is not easy to deal with non-models because they would be very aware of the camera, which would make the poses or the facial expressions look awkward. However, by engaging and talking with them, you will be able to get their natural expressions, which are usually the best. A little humor here and there doesn’t hurt either 🙂
