This week we explored portraits, which I found fun yet with some trepidation. It can be tough directing people, having them do what you need for an image. I found I prefer a more natural, hands off approach. It was more fun, and I think with better results, capturing a moment in time, a slice of life. Regardless I liked the exercise and the results, and was able to try a few techniques to create some pretty good portraits. I must say I’m feeling very good at the progress I am making in not only improving my technical skills, but also my composition and design elements I’m putting into the images. Enjoy!
