September’s a week over already, but I still wanted to share my photos from that month. Looking back over the year, my favorite photos have been when I’ve captured someone in the middle of a laugh or giving a look that is “so them” or in an environment that reflects who they are. But even though this is my favorite kind of photo to take, most of my subjects have been objects, scenes, or landscapes rather than people. I’ve been hesitant to get up close and personal with my people subjects.
I set out to remedy this with the theme of “portraits,” inspired in part by photographer Michael A. Muller’s portrait series and Darren Rowse’s portrait tips. This month I also practiced using my new camera. Here are some of the highlights.
