Blog 8-Portraits

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.


  1. The picture of Jacob is one of the best portraits I've ever seen. You controlled the light. The picture has a feel that it's coming out of the darkness. Very well done.

  2. Yeah, your portrait of me is now my facebook profile picture haha, you did a great job. I really do thing the one is Jacob is amazing, it really does look professional. The lighting is perfect, the focus is perfect, it just looks really really good! I really liked your one HDR photo too with the sun really flaring, it looks awesome! Nicely done, you took some high quality photos!
