As some of you may have noticed, I have taken up portrait photography. This is due to two main reasons:
1) I'm taking Photography 3 at COTC and this class concentrates on...you guessed it, portrait photography.
2) I've discovered that I really enjoy it, a lot!
Portrait photography is a very different medium than landscape photography and presents a whole new range of difficulties and skills to master. Not that I would say I have mastered landscape photography yet, but it's always good to broaden our horizons. I am extremely excited to learn the art of studio lighting (And it is an art, don't let anyone tell you different!
) and the art of working with models.
You also may have noticed that I have been posting quite a few shots of Samantha. I can't help it, she was great to work with, very easy going and relaxed and I think that comes across in the shots. We shot for two hours with many wardrobe and lighting changes, so even though I have already posted quite a few, there will no doubt be more coming from this same shoot. I also hope to continue to shoot her pregnancy and then get some full family shots once the baby has arrived.
Over the next couple of months it is a safe bet that there will be many more portraits coming. Hope that's OK with everyone
. Please, anyone who may have some feedback, don't hesitate. The only way we as artists can grow and improve is through constant critique and criticism.
