Instead of a studio, some clients prefer to have their intimate portraiture session shot on location.Sometimes even a barn as was the case here.
Posing on location is easier too because you have physical objects to interact with like this wagon, which provides not just something to do with her hands but also her feet. In this kind of situation, I try not to be fussy about posing subjects.
What I do is watch what a client does naturally and try to have her interact with the background in some way that’s physically comfortable. To show how I want her to stand, I put myself in the pose but let her give me the ultimate interpretation. Once she’s in a pose, I select camera angles that accent her good features and minimize anything she’s self-conscious about, even if she’s wrong about it.
One way we increase communications is to show clients some of the images on the camera’s screen during the shoot. Not every shot, just ones I that like because I don’t like to break their concentration. When this works—and that’s most of the time—seeing how great you look makes the session progress smoother.
