I rarely step out of my comfort zone and force myself to work with people but sometimes it happens. I,m not very experienced at taking portraits and it has always been a big problem. I never know how to pose the subject. I,m used to shooting cats and they seem to know all the secrets of posing without any instructions given.
I always panic when it comes to taking portraits. I look through hundreds of photographs before the photoshoot desperately trying to figure out how would my ideal photos look like. After the photoshoot I always get disappointed and always end up judging the model and saying how camera shy and uncooperative she was, then I start telling everybody that I will never ever work with people because the are stupid, stupid, stupid!...
Ok, this is what usually happens.
It didn,t happen yesterday.
This is Ksenia and taking portraits of her was an incredibly nice experience. I took lots of film pictures with my Zenit and I can,t wait to see how they turned out.
I also took some very simple and quite banal photos with a digital camera, here,s what I came up with :)
Have a nice day,
