Hey guys, long time lurker of these forums here, All of you do some awesome work, and I've perused the forums for an upcoming photoshoot I'm doing for a friend. She needs a professional looking headshot for a few articles she's getting published in a few publications. I've read a lot of the tips and tricks all of you have, but probably my biggest concern is not with my camera, focus, etc, but her. Don't get me wrong she's a fun person, but I know from random experiences with her in the past that when the camera gets in front of her. She can get shy and her smiles and face can easily appear forced and unwelcoming. SO my underlying question with all of this is: for those of you that do portraits or work with human subjects, what do you recommend doing to help "break the ice" with a model/subject? She's in her mid to late 20's, so I don't think jingling keys will work like it has for me in the past (I used to do baby young children photos). Thanks for any helpful advice in general. I'm kinda stressing out about this shoot because it's my first of its kind, and I don't want to make awful mistakes.
