i would like to start taking more portraits. matt was showing me some professional photos that were taken of his classmates for his program and they were boring/awful (like awkward/stiff/i-am-in-pain-posing-on-a-bench awful). however, i would say that it would be hard to take photos of “bookish-type” grad students. i thought perhaps i could have taken something more professional/aesthetically appealing than what was taken or at least photographed something slightly inclined to encouraging more students into the program.
God has blessed my mother with a love of photography, which has in turn led me to “long-term borrow” some of her old equipment. i am hoping perhaps there are some nearby friends that need a quick picture or two that i can practice my skillz on for the time being. thank you prospective portrait faces! thank you Lord for a workable camera, some nifty lenses and an editing program that just keeps on giving (thanks mom for teaching me all your pro skills)!
