Headshots and Portraits are very fun photography jobs to do. You need to connect with your subject very quickly and find out a lot about them. You also need to make them feel at ease in front of the camera. During a headshot or portrait session the most important thing is getting the subject to open up and let their expressions and emotions translate to the images, you need to be able to make them laugh naturally, smile, act serious or business-like, and other emotions. Even though you are only looking for a couple good photos, you still need to photograph a lot to make sure you cover all the angles of their face and make sure you get those emotions.
