So I just finished a day in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Michigan is a great place (probably better in summer when its warmer) but the natural marsh areas are pretty great. I spent today at Norman Camera, a really nice camera store that is in both Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids. I taught two basic/intermediate portrait classes here. This class consists of the basic elements and techniques of a great portrait. You don't have to have expensive lights to create an effective portrait. These images were created with a simple tungsten constant light and a parabolic, a very inexpensive setup. The model here is a man named Peter. He is the coolest, non-techy old man you will every find. He thinks usb flash drives are called "chip computers"! I was able to photograph him during the class. We only had about 15 minutes to photograph Peter. This was a hands-on way of demonstrating lighting patterns and some posing. He was a really great model. I hope you enjoy the result!
