Getting Comfortable In Front of a Camera


We know that being the natural you probably are you’ll stop reading now, but if you’re not, then please keep going, and hopefully this post will help.


Whether you’re an actor or a model, at some point in your career, there’s going to be a camera in front of you filming your every move. Whether or not you’ve personally experienced it, there is probably someone out there or someone you know who gets really nervous whenever there’s a camera pointed at them. We want to help that person out.


The most important thing you can do is to remember to relax. We know, easier said than done, but try it out. If you can’t relax, then fake it until you start to feel yourself relax. We promise the camera isn’t going to hurt you, it’s just a piece of equipment that’s meant to capture what it sees. If you know you’re going to have your picture taken beforehand, it might be a good idea to practice your poses in the mirror or have something planned out. Visualize your photoshoot and work with the photographer so that you can have a great shoot.


If anything, it’s not completely different from all those selfies you take for Facebook. If you can do it for your own camera, we know you can do it when someone else is holding the camera.


“What about when you’re being filmed?”


Good question! If you’re talking in front of a camera just by yourself, the best way to look natural is to pretend like you’re talking to that person behind the camera. If there’s no one holding the camera, then pretend there is. Just pretend like you’re talking to your best friend, and the words will just flow better and you’ll be a lot more comfortable in front of the camera. If you’re shooting a film with another person and you’re interacting with that person, be aware of the camera, where it’s placed and where you have to go, but pretend it’s not there. Get into your character and do your scene.

Now try it out for yourself and become a natural!
