If you feel shy in front of the camera you should practice it more to stand in front of it. The best way to gain is to do what you are afraid to do, right? Oh yes, right, I know.
Just try to be yourself. Wear your favorite outfit, go ahead and put it on. Try not to focus on the action of the photo being taken, instead focus on the intention behind the camera and how others will feel about their memories later. Review the pictures and be honest with yourself, look for those things that you like. Whatever it is – accept that you like it, then know that you can copy and repeat that success!
I work with everyday people and I can guarantee you that most of the people are shy. ...and the final result ? Check out my gallery on my website. I think it tells it all. www.anettelek.com - have a great day guys wherever you are !
