A recent portrait photoshoot with Halie in Hartford, Connecticut. Here are some interesting photos I like to share.
Whenever I start a portraiture session, I almost start with simple a headshot. It’s a good way to get a light reading on your model’s face. Usually, I don’t opt to go for off camera lighting right away either but that sun made for such a beautiful rim light that you just can’t resist.
This one is just natural light. Also a little extra space in the framing for a more environmental look. No pun intended.
As both the model and I get more comfortable with the lighting set up and the photoshoot itself, we go for the more artistic shot.
Sometimes, a portrait is used to simply portray a person as who they are. Sometimes, a portrait is use to portray a person’s dreams and aspirations rather than what’s in reality.
A photoshoot with a Vietnamese girl almost always include an ao dai. It is such an elegant dress.
Vietnamese ao dai with ancient European doors. Interesting contrast, no?
Last photo of the day, a nice, fun, and easy photo with all natural light. She became really comfortable with posing by now too!
