Last week we looked at how to play your way to stunning shoots, but is there a place for pretending too? Actually YES, you can pretend your way to stunning shoots, although perhaps not quite in the way you might imagine. The trick to confidence on camera and shining in front of that lens is to place your focus on someone other than yourself, namely the person who will view your photos or watch your videos.

This week’s excerpt from my recent intensive in-studio workshop explains how you can effortlessly connect through the camera – what to do and what not to do. It also explores why being filmed differs from speaking to live audiences, and what to do about this in order to #RockThatCamera. Interested? View this 2 minute video, with thanks to beautiful Juanita:



Does this video clip resonate with you? Do you have a story to share about how you’ve successfully (or not) pretended your way to a stunning photo or video shoot? If so, please share it in the comments below. I’d love to learn about it.

And if you have a friend who could seriously improve their confidence on camera, for personal or professional reasons, you know what to do. Yes, please share this with them! No-one needs to suffer from camera phobia, nor from unflattering photos and videos.
