I have been working on learning to shoot portraits for the past 3 weeks. I belong to a new Meetup group that brings in models for shooting headshot and full body portraits. This is a free group and cost nothing to shoot the models. These men and women are striving to break into the modeling industry and therefore, all they ask, is to receive photos for their portfolio.
I'm still shooting landscapes and travel photos, and just using this to expand my photo skills. It seems to be working out well. I still need to learn more about lighting, both studio and natural light with flash. I have books to read and I'm also taking some Craftsy courses to see on video have it all works together. It will just take some time, as the old cliche says, Rome Was Not Built In A Day. I will continue to work on this and possibly do this for some side work.
Below are some recently taken photos during the weekly meetings each Saturday night.
