Some Thoughts on Portrait Photography

Yesterday I did a photo shoot with the lovely Becca, but unfortunately I feel like all the pictures turned out disappointingly similar and mediocre. So I did more research into how to take stunning portraits. My search led me to this article, which really inspired me to thoroughly think things through more before going to a shoot. I now realize that there is a huge difference between portraits and all other photography. Since inanimate objects and animals have no concept of a camera, they cannot be camera shy and therefore continue to act like themselves, however with people it seems that one must find out who that person is and then direct them in how to best be themselves.
