Portraits are really cool.
Recently, I've been really into shooting portraits. In fact, this past week, I went to SF with a few friends and I had the opportunity to shoot a few. Soooooo, I thought I'd like to share some of the photos and inspiration here :-)
To be honest, I used to dislike portraits because I felt that they were a little too staged. At that time, I mainly shot candids and non-human objects/places, so I wasn't used to the idea of staging photos . But after watching a few videos and seeing a lot of great work on VSCO, I decided to give it a try. What really turned me was the power that portraits have- they tell stories in a visual form. One's portrait can say a lot about them, and I would love to be a part of that storytelling process.
