Recently, we shot some portraits for an Ottawa area writer – Ann – who wanted a portrait for press releases, author info and marketing purposes. She asked for a simple natural author portrait. For her that meant a sincere look without big smiles.
We met at our photo studio Ottawa Studio Works – which was perfect for her as she works in central Ottawa.
She enjoyed the session and I had to work to make her stop smiling so much – see the portraits, below. Drawing the desired personality – that’s the fun for me. The technical camera work is only the beginning.
