Shots and Thoughts

Photos and comments as I explore my passion for photography. Written to and for myself as a journal to track major moments and minor observations as I continue to evolve my visual art. 

My Love of Portraiture

From the very beginning of my professional photo career I have loved portrait work. In the studio,  on location, natural light, it's all good.

The basic always apply: clean background, right exposure, check the direction of the light and the real key is expression.

Pro Tip: The client expression is a mirror of my expression. In many if not most of my shots you see a happy engaged client full of emotion. The mirror effect works if authentic!
