Four ways you can make models feel more comfortable on set and create a connection with them to bring out the best in your subjects: learn what you can about your clients, such as their hobbies and likes, so you can make conversation; always have food on set; play their favorite music during the shoot (another reason to learn about them beforehand); and shoot through moments till you get the shot you want.
