The year has started off with a smash... shot a handful of weddings, a bunch of actors and performers, and convinced my puppy that peeing outdoors is definitely the way to go. So all's good in the :e:hood.
There's something kind of incredible about spending a serious amount of time noticing the small subtle moments in people's eyes. Whenever I teach classes on shooting headshots and marketing material one the biggest points that I try and drive home is that fact that it isn't portraiture, it's journalism. The moments that you're documenting are on a much smaller scale and all happen within the confines of the eyes, but it's journalism. Marketing yourself is all about who you are, not what you are. I am eric. That's who I am - a unique individual with a distinct prospective and experience. What I am? I'm a storyteller... for the time being ;] I'll contend any day that who someone is will forever be so much more alluring and attractive that what someone is. Thoughts for the day.
