It isn’t often that I add a new category to my “categories.”
One of my goals (and the way I’m justifying the expense of digital gear) for this year is to become a confident portrait photographer. I don’t need to be Zack Arias (whose work is fantastic), but I want to feel like I know what I’m doing. Fortunately, I have roommates to drag to my bedroom-turned-studio for impromptu self-education sessions. I am fairly happy with the light here considering my constraints (one undiffused light, limited space and backdrop options), and I know where I need to work. More of these may appear from time to time.
Nikon D200, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8, strobe that was free.
