Portraiture is neither my photographic focus, or strength, but looking for the essence of person is so close to what I do, that I feel I must explore and push myself to become more comfortable, and more competent at it. My photography is almost exclusively spontaneous. I’m trying to capture something completely honest from the subject.
This photo contest is the first I’ve ever entered. I choose portraiture specifically because it is so challenging for me. I am excited for the opportunity to have professional input on my submitted images.
