What can I do about this nervousness, I know it's not a big deal and I try to tell myself that, but at the con itself I get so so nervous during picture takings, I just forget it all
Think of the funniest thing you can remember.
Think of a cat with human feet. Imagine what that would look like.
Think of what would happen if elephants could fly and were carnivores.
Funny things help us to relax. Even dance around a bit. That helps to shake out the nerves.
Practice helps too.

And an experienced photographer will help you with your poses.

It's pointless to brag about equipment.
Repeat what you see in my posts and you'll sound really smart

Rules for life: Rule #7
Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are.
