End of the year, first of the year, portraits

Portrait photography can be a deeply rewarding experience for both the photographer and the portrait sitter. For the photographer it gives an opportunity to try to marry technical aspects of photography with the artistic attempt to capture the personality of the sitter.

I’ve always had a fondness for portrait photography, much to the chagrin of my loved ones.

I didn’t want this post to devolve into another love letter to Fuji’s cameras and lenses…suffice to say they are well-suited.

The included images are a mix of some captured just before the end of 2016 and a few weeks into 2017. My ease with the X-Pro2 and X-T2 has increased in just that short period, but practice does make perfect.

A lot more portraits to come this year along with everything else. Until then I hope you are happily engaged in what you love.
