I really enjoy portraits. I think that portrait photography is my favorite. With that being said, I found these portraits to be very difficult to take. I don’t really have any experience at all working with external lighting (like Einstein strobes, etc.) While I found the lighting to be hard to use, I think that it definitely adds a really nice effect.
I also discovered that I have no idea how to pose people- especially men. I found it easier to snap a candid shot of them laughing rather than tell them specifically what to do. I began to get a feel for it by the end of the activity, though.
