I love being part of CreativeMornings/Buffalo. For the July 2018 event the theme was Intention, with the amazing speaker Myron Glick of Jericho Road. I offered a portrait for any willing attendee. All these amazing faces showed up!
A trick I often use when photographing someone is to ask them to close their eyes for a moment. This softens the gaze and can assist with a more natural expression. With the theme of the event in mind, I asked each participant to focus on an intention he or she had for the moment, the day, the month, or the year. And when he or she was ready, eyes opened and I captured that moment of intention.
I was fiercely impressed with the willingness of strangers and friends alike to share that moment with me. You are all inspired. See everyone up close here.
