    Keep the mood light and fun by cracking jokes or sharing stories. This can help create a relaxed atmosphere and make the subject feel more comfortable.
  • Be patient:

    It’s important to be patient with your subject, especially if they are not used to being in front of the camera. Take breaks if necessary and allow them to take their time to get comfortable.
  • Provide positive feedback:

  • Show them the results:
