2. Being comfortable during clicks

During editorial photography, you would be getting extra time to get rid of the jitters of the camera. It can be pretty helpful to have a few non-posed times to get used to the photographer and her equipment if you are someone who is self-conscious near a camera. The prolonged exposure would aid you in getting to your comfort zone quickly. You will be awestruck just at your better half and not on camera by the time you get the first glance of the ceremony.
