Often before shooting a portrait session, I think... what if I was the subject? How would I want the photographer to act? What would I want as a client? What I'm trying to learn here, is how to act like a photographer. In sports, this isn't as much the case, but for getting people to react, it means almost everything. So, if you've ever been on the other side of the lens, share your thoughts. If you've gotten married, list things your photographer did or didn't do, that you liked or disliked. Same goes for any type of portrait session, etc.
