The point of portraits…

I really am going to try to post more frequently. I love this site and blogging, but I seem to continuously put it off. Anyway, here is a recent little session I did with my friend Evangeline. I decided to use Lomochrome, an interesting film stock. Basically it is supposed to shift your greens to purple. The film is labeled as 100-400 so i figured that if i shot it at 400, it would be a little moodier and underexposed and that is what i wanted to try to do for this session! My friend Evangeline is loves to experiment and is a highly creative person so I think this session really fits her personality. Thats what portraits are about to me, showing a piece of a person’s personality and letting them speak through an image. If a portrait is just a picture of a person, I am not interesting in taking portraits. Just a thought.  Lemme know what you think about portraits in the comments or just leave any questions or thoughts down there, I would love to hear more from some people here on wordpress. Hope you guys enjoy!

  1. So I’m gonna be all formal and ask on here, but what did your ‘subject’ think? Did she herself kind of in this view or was she like ‘whoa I never saw/thought of myself that way’?


    • hey! Yeah, she loved them. We have known each other for a long time, she is a pretty rebellious, free spirited, creative person with a kind of punky style. The moodier vibe certainly fits her personality. She has been sharing them everywhere so I guess she feels that it displays her well! Haha
