NEX-7 with 50mm 1.8 And People Photography
May 12, 2012

Recently started a short course on people photography. Useful course but more-so technical - really would like to focus on how to get people comfortable in front of the camera and "posing" right. Would value any tips from the good folk at these forums - from a psychological perspective how do you go about taking pictures of people?

Below are pics that I took of my stepsister as a first try:

PS: For those who say that a camera won't make you a better photographer, in my case the NEX-7 and 50mm lens has allowed me to take pictures I was never able to.
