Taking Photographs Of People At Alumapalooza
My friend Kristiana took a picture of me taking a picture so I thought it would be fun to post the picture I saw through the lens and snapped while she snapped this pic of me. So, this would be a before and after, of sorts. I don't use photoshop but use Lightroom to enhance the overall photograph as you can see from the pic. When I take pictures of people I usually give little direction. Sometimes I talk and try to make them feel at ease and wait for a moment where they seem relaxed or the "in between" when they think I am done. Usually I tell them to look here or there but I try to make people feel as if I am not taking a photograph so their essence will shine through. That's my ultimate goal, anyway.
