Portrait photography is challenging. Since I don’t do a lot of portrait work, it challenges me to think outside of my normal landscape/nature photography box. Sure, much of the technical and creative aspects are the same, but putting a person in the frame, as the focus of the image, requires a different thought process.
I would focus more on people in my photos if it weren’t for my greatest challenge in portrait work – scheduling. (Remember, photography isn’t my full-time employment.) I can take photos of sunrises or flowers or bugs whenever I have a spare moment. I just grab my camera bag and go find something pretty or interesting. To do a portrait shoot, requires planning and cooperation with others – date, time, location, weather, etc..
