I like talking to students. They are so eager to absorb everything about the craft and the business of photography. So I was pleased to be invited to speak to a class for Professor Penny Ann Dolin at the Graphic Information Technology (GIT) school at ASU. The class was learning about portraiture. I demonstrated a few of the technical issues such as white balancing and work flow but I stressed the importance of putting their client at ease to achieve a friendly, confident and relaxed portrait. To do this, I described different ways that I was able to “Connect” with my subjects and told a few stories about problems that may arise and how to work through them.
