True story: I used to hate studio photography or shooting people. At the time, I felt like photography is most fun when I was discovering a new appreciation for something that people walk by everyday. Of course, now I can't even stand not photographing a person for more than a week or two. I recently had a trip to Hong Kong, and it was fun shooting street photography, but I was literally dying from not doing any portrait shoot for almost two months. I also ended up turning into a flash nerd. I love lighting, it just adds so much possibilities and creative freedom.
Anyways, got back a few weeks ago and remembered that I haven't done a studio portrait in a long, long time. So what you say good people of stoppers? Am I rusty? haha
