You know, I started as a newborn photographer. And I am working with newborn babies for almost 4 years now. But when it came to photograph adults, I wasn’t sure if I will be able to do that. You don’t have to talk with a baby, you don’t have to explain nothing, you just need to pose the baby and you need to feel him/her. Whith grownups, you need to talk. You need to guide them. You need to get your model to be interested in you. But, most important, you need to have that special connection with your model.
If you want to be perfect in what you are doing, learning new skills is not enough. You have to gain experience. You have to work hard and a lot. You should never stop.
