Week #4 Senior Portraits

17 May

I am still doing the Project 52 with some friends but I needed to post one just for myself this week as well.

If you follow me at all you know I struggle with portrait photography, and if you are new to my site  let me tell you this, I struggle with portrait photography!  I am not sure what it is about this type of shoot that makes me uncomfortable or uninspired but I have really tried very hard to overcome this mental block. I have turned to  photography friends Paul and Jon for pointers and tips and while I have taken to heart everything that I have learned from them,  I still find myself dreading the prospect of portrait work.

This week I must have had a break through. I took my niece out for her senior portraits and I had a blast. I was probably more comfortable directing her since I know her but I felt at ease tell her to move around and changing any shot that I didn’t think worked. We even tried several locations and it was a great time. The fact that she is beautiful helped quite a bit but so far the ones that I have edited have turned out really great, if I do say so myself.

The real test will come when she sees the finished product as she is very picky about photos of herself, but I am excited to share them and I am equally as excited that I came away from the experience feeling more confident and positive about portrait photography than I ever have.
