Help! My first paid senior portrait shoot and I have no idea what I'm doing!
A girl at my school asked for me to take her senior portraits since she's followed my photography for a while, but the thing is... I've never actually done proper portraits of people before!
I appreciate that she likes my work and trusts me to give good results, but I don't know the first things to taking senior portraits since I'm not even a senior yet! I'm used to taking photos alone and of nature and stuff so I'm afraid I'll be too awkward or quiet...
I really want to give it a go though! I'm just scared she'll be underwhelmed or disappointing so are there any tip anyone could give me to try and make the shoot to be less awkward and the photos look somewhat "professional" (or close to it)?
And she wants to do it on Sunday (which is the day the yearbook needs them by) aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa I'm really nervous!
