Connecting to People
More than I love photography, I love people. I have always been drawn to people and getting to know them better. Since I’m not particularly great at writing or drawing, portrait photography allows me to explain how I see the subject and tell a story easily.
In college I haven’t been able to use my DSLR as often as I’d want. Thankfully the quality of the cameras in our smartphones have gotten exceedingly better. So I often find myself whipping out my phone any time inspiration strikes.
I don’t always get complete creative control, but when I do I like to make it count. I look for the small nuances and mannerisms that make the person and I try to bring that out in the portrait, to tell a story. It is something that brings me great pleasure.
