This month, the Who We Become circle takes on classic portraiture. In a way this is what got all of us caught up in photography — trying to get better portraits of our kids. And while our portraiture curriculum this month sounds fairly basic (head shot, half body, full body, group), I can’t wait to see how our study of compositional elements over the past 8 months takes our portraiture to a higher level.
I don’t know if I’ve achieved a higher level with these head shots, but they make me happy anyway. The girls have not been very willing models lately and it was the first time in a while that I’ve gotten some smiles and eye contact when the camera came out, rather than funny faces or turned heads.
