52Frames – 2021-21 – Portrait

A lot of photographers are far more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it. I don’t have too much problems being in front of MY camera (where I control what gets out of my hard drive 😉 ); trying to take pictures of someone else is a whole other ball game and much further away from my comfort zone.

But for the 52Frames of this week, the theme was “Portrait”, with an extra credit for “Rembrandt Lighting“. And I kind of knew that I needed to be behind the camera and not in front of it, so I asked Pierre to help me, and he gracefully accepted to pose. He was also instrumental in helping me setting up the lights – my first setup did not work as I wanted it to work, and it took some insights and suggestions from him before I actually got there! I lack experience in lighting, and this is far from natural from me… something to practice!
