Portraits are not something that I typically focus on. Lately, though, I've been working more with staged and candid portraiture. My friend Tanner offered to model for me. Tanner has heterochromia, meaning his eyes are two different colors. He has posed in images for me before so I was comfortable shooting with him.
I found these two photos the strongest.
I found a strong contrast between the emotions in the two photos. In the first he has a very inviting expression and a small smirk, in the second photo his look is calm but with no apparent emotion.
Portraiture has most certainly been a challenge for me but I continue to learn from my experiences and critiques.
