Character Portraits featuring Joe McNally and Daniel Norton Ep1

Join Photographers Joe McNally and Daniel Norton for the first in a series of character portrait studies. Character portraiture is not just about finding interesting subjects, but creating light that hi-lights the subject in such a way to emphasize what it is we as photographer’s see in them. In the case of Mary, Joe and Daniel saw a beauty refined over a lifetime and a commanding yet subtle presence. To capture this, a large (thus soft) diffused light was used. This allowed for a flat almost shadowless light on Mary that was then contrasted by the choice of a black background and wardrobe. This combination focuses the viewer on the delicate quality of Mary’s expressions.
