Okay, new series. But, I got ahead of myself and needed to provide a portrait foundation before I begin to dissect an individual shoot. What kind of portraits do I do? What do they entail? How are they prepped, completed, and exited? These are often the things that get overlooked in the quest for the right gear or other distractions that provide no basis for becoming better photographers. Portraiture is a wonderful tool we can use to guide us in whatever subsequent genre we wish to pursue. Humans retain intangibility that once understood can help us navigate the rest of our photographic life.
