It seems as though I have been shooting a lot of portraits lately... which, honestly, is a great great thing. I love stretching my comfort level with various equipment.
My heart lies with natural, ambient light...
...but I could get used to this flash thing.
I think the select was this one:
My friend Philip needed a portrait for the book jacket of his almost-out photojournalism book on his time he spent in Haiti.
I'm a fan of the cinematographic crop.
I did football portraits the other day, too...
100-something of this:
Also, the incoming Student Association... (I still call it SGA. Is there a difference without the "government" part?) Very simple, semi-corporate photo... minus the corporate duds.
I enjoy the challenge of making all the lighting different. Different light-shaping, different poses, interacting with different people in different ways.
Maybe its because I'm just not good enough to duplicate a set yet... things are able to be random and still look like I know what I'm doing.
Hence the "Fledgling Photographer" continues...
