People photography is first and foremost about your subject: Who are they? But how you approach them will also influence the results and quality of the images you get. Taking time to connect with, and understand, your subjects will help you capture more authentic expression and personality.
Try this, as you begin to shoot, physically move a little closer to your subject instead of relying on a zoom lens. Getting closer makes a more personal connection and will encourage interaction and draw out personality.
