Three reasons you might feel awkward in front of the camera

Three reasons you might feel awkward in front of the camera

Have you ever wondered why you feel like you appear strange in photos? 
Did you realize it is due to a simple trick of perception? We’re accustomed to seeing ourselves in reverse in the mirror. So when faced with our image through a camera lens, it’s as if we’re viewing a different version of ourselves, leaving us feeling awkward but hard to pinpoint why. 

Self-consciousness. We all strive to look our best, but the fear of not meeting others’ expectations can make us uneasy. Everyone in front of my camera says one of two things: I look terrible in photos” or “I hate having my picture made.” We worry that our best efforts won’t measure up, amplifying our discomfort in front of the camera. Everyone has this fear, and it is a lie we tell ourselves.

Lack of control. Many people feel powerless in front of the camera. After all, you’re not a supermodel; you have no acting experience. You are fretting over angles, expressions, and poses, which only heightens our discomfort.

But the GREAT news is, here at kp studios, we understand all these lies we tell ourselves and know how to help you relax, pose, and look great on camera. We promise to capture a fantastic picture every single time. You can ease some of the stress by trusting the process; we won’t let you leave disappointed. When our clients see their images for the first time, their initial response isn’t “UGH,” it’s “Wow, I look better than I thought!” 

The icing on the cake is when we break out the “magic pen tool” to gently soften fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, or anything else that might keep you from feeling comfortable with your picture. We subtly soften features, ensuring you still look genuine, a better version of yourself, and NOT an overly retouched, artificial version.

So it’s okay to be scared, nervous, anxious, and downright dread having your picture made, BUT do not let it keep you from success. Trust our 25 years of experience and unique process to leave you with the most outstanding images you have ever taken. Please don’t take our word for it; check out our 94- 5 Star Reviews on Google.
