Here are some portraits I like-but didn’t make it into my portfolio. They were all fun! All but one involved studio lights. Can you guess which one was not taken with studio lights?
One aspect that I enjoy is adding the element of the environment into my work. This sometimes takes more effort to find a unique spot to do a shoot. Sometimes I have to ask for permission to do a photoshoot. Other times I just go for it and explain myself later.
Finding a good subject to photograph is a challenge.
Try photographing your subject with a TTL. You can get some great results if you can fire the flash from another spot besides on your hot-shoe
