Portraits

Portraits can be a divisive topic among photographers. Some folks enjoy the ease of working with a posing subject, while others find the results a bit too contrived. I count myself in the former camp, though my approach is often a little unorthodox 🙃

I prefer natural, available light sources to studio lighting or a flash; I love the extreme bokeh of my vintage lenses rather than the tack sharp focus of modern glass; and I include some of my candid street photography in my portrait portfolio even though the subjects aren’t posing in the traditional sense.

I also don’t do nearly as much portrait photography as I would like which is something I’ll be looking to change in the coming days (as long as people are willing to hang outside in February, that is)! In the meantime, here’s a collection of some of my favorite portraits from the last few years.
