The conversationalist might also enjoy imitating a favorite animal’s behavior or a movie scene. Capturing spontaneous poses from these activities will produce some real gems.
Be careful with the conversationalist child, though. If you talk too much during the introduction, he might become burned out, leaving the meat of expression behind. Or, if you jump into the photography too soon, he might be caught off guard and clam up. Start the dialogue right away, move leisurely, and snap shots throughout the warm up period. Continue shooting as his personality blooms before you.
