I am aware that my experience with portrait photography is limited, but I have begun to explore this genre with my homelessness project and at events such as pride.
However I lack confidence and technique with portrait photography. Before I continue with image the Portrait I wish to read around the subject a little.
My goal at the moment is to take my camera out with me each time that I go out, and ask one person if I can take their photo. I want to practice building rapport, being aware of lighting, gaining confidence and improving my technique.
I need to slow down, talk a little, make the eyes the focal point, be aware of composition.
Today has been a positive start. I’ve taken for photos today. Two with no prior conversation and two with. I prefer the two where we spoke before I asked them.
