You have the choice of studio or on location for your portrait.
I use a philosophy of realism to regard what image to depict. Detail and shades of light reveal remembrance and survive us in the relationship with our surrounding circumstance. It is to that individualism that I point the lens.
In the detail of the image, your eye slides across to discover a new point of view. Each jagged edge proves unique to that person. I may choose from a number of qualities of light to display your form: a strongly directional light from the side raises the texture of the skin, for instance. Oppositely, the cloudy day or the softbox - even the umbrella softens ambient light into furrows, dampening creases. Strong light makes for a contrast that can be as subtle as the eye can manage; constantly vanishing and returning to attention.
