Inspired and Inspiring: Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes who you are

It's only three sleeps until SNAP Photography Festival and we could not be more excited!  

Jillian Powers shared this Ted Talk by Amy Cuddy in the SNAP group today and suggested that those attending her I Woke Up Like This talk and demonstration give it a watch.  

Jillian uses body language and non verbal communication with her subjects a lot, to create more fluid interactions and pictures.  

I think it's safe to say a photographic subject will never feel more vulnerable than when naked in front of the camera, so having an understand of what their body language is saying and knowing how to put them at ease can really help to create an authentic portrait.
