Portrait photography is a zone that I haven’t really gotten into or played around with much. I’ve done a few shoots for friends and family but to be honest I’ve never been all that happy with the results. I’m not sure what it is but I’ve just never really connected with taking portraits. Candid photos are a different story. I do enjoy capturing images of people when they don’t know there are being photographed because to me they seem more natural. And maybe that is the approach I should be taking to portraiture as well.
This is a portrait I took of my wife that was just spur of the moment, let’s snap a few shots and see what we get kind of deal. I used a single off camera flash that was positioned camera right and bounced off the ceiling.
