Brandon is 17 and one of my daughter’s friends. He asked me to do some photos with him. Like most millennials, his experience with being photographed involves 1000’s of selfies and the occasional family photo session. I thought he did really well during the photo shoot. It wasn’t hard getting him to drop the “selfie face” and try more genuine expressions. There was some direction given for posing, but very light direction with emphasis on natural and comfortable postures. My daughter’s generation is more camera aware than any other, and it has become second nature for them to slip into a pretty well-developed persona in front of the camera. The challenge is to persuade them to abandon it, even if just for a few moments.
