When working with models in order to produce some great product images that will help your product sell, it’s important that the model feels comfortable, at ease and relaxed – if not, this will show in the photographs. Working with models can often be a challenge if you’re not used to it, and models without masses of experience are often prone to feeling more uncomfortable than those who’ve gotten used to doing it day in, day out. If you’re thinking of employing some models to show off your fashion pieces, we’ve got some great tips on how to ensure that they feel more comfortable during the shoot.
If you are nervous or uptight, the model is likely to pick up on this, and mirror your behaviour. Acting relaxed and comfortable around your model is going to make them feel more at ease around you, which is why it is so important. Have confidence when speaking to models – at the end of the day, they’re just another human being doing their job – and they’re more likely to be comfortable as well. A friendly smile and chat can often go a long way when it comes to ensuring that a model is comfortable around you and at ease during the shoot.
