Hooked up with a girl last week to do simple portraits. The light wasn’t the best having to use tungsten in my own room, with no access to natural light, and some fill-in flash. Still, she was charming and had a really interesting ‘look’. I didn’t come away feeling that I had made that ‘killer pic’ but there were a few that where close. She took all the images away with her and seemed pleased which is what matters most. I did conclude that there is a simple pleasure in just taking simple portraits.
