A little BTS, and DIY on my recent portrait session with Zoey

The above photo as well as the ones from my previous post Were all taken using a lot of gear that I built myself. so I thought It would be nice to share some of that with you. To get all of the details make sure to take the rest of the journey.

I'm a Portrait Photographer?!

I have been looking at the world through a camera for a long time, and I have wanted to take pictures of almost every subject imaginable, except for people. I just never got along with translating people into photos. I have however recently got the bug, and began converting an extra room in the house into a studio. Portraits may just become my new favorite thing. Especially with the encouragement I have been getting lately. An unlikely source of encouragement was from the one hour photo, that I use sometimes use. I sent off the four shots of my daughter Zoey here, to be printed, and when I went to pick them up they couldn't be found, finally they realized that they had set them aside, and they asked me if they were taken by a professional photographer, and that if they were, I would have to get a release for them. I explained that I took them, and they told me how good they were, thanks ;)  Like I said portraits may become my new favorite thing.
