Jacob. 1/60 at f/2.8. Inside with side window lighting. The room had a really warm feel from the old, brown wallpaper so I wanted to take his picture because the lighting looked beautiful for skin tones. I also wanted to go for an environmental portrait so I kept his camera in the photo.
Church Portrait. 1/3" at f/2.8 on tripod. I was in the church trying out an HDR portrait but didn't like how it turned out. But I still liked the single photo. I like the composition of the rule of thirds and the shallow depth of field. Once again, I felt there was some subtle, soft, side lighting that when well with the photo.
