My Favorite Portrait

As the title states, this is my favorite portrait I've taken to date. I've read about and heard of photographers having emotional attachments to their images, ultimately resulting in them placing that said image on a pedestal that others would never. I'm not entirely sure if this is one of those times lol but I have a few reasons for why I do love this image so much.

  1. This image is one of many portraits captured during my very first model photoshoot. Before this shoot I've only practiced street, architectural, and event photography. I never actually entertained the thought of becoming a studio style photographer, mostly because I imagined it to be boring and not as challenging. During this shoot I was surprisingly entertained and enjoyed the interaction and direction needed to take place during the shoot. Now I wasn't wrong about it being not very challenging but I mean that in the best way possible, I feel my heavy practice with street and event photography, where I have to adjust on the fly to capture the perfect shot, aided me a lot while being in a studio setting where everything is in my control.

  2. Due to the amount of control and time I had to get the shot I desired, I found editing to be much more enhancing to the image and I was pleasantly surprised with how much better it made post processing

  3. I found the delivery of the image to the model a pleasing piece of the process. Talking to her and knowing I was a major part of the emotions and happiness that she was experiencing after seeing the final result was something that makes me feel amazing. I look forward to more experiences like this for both my clients and myself.

With all of that being shared at least now there's some insight as to why I love this image so much. I'm excited to be able to create many more with the potential to take this one's place in my heart.
