slowing down

This is a continuation of a portrait project I worked on for The Dance Palace, a community center in Pt Reyes, California, before I went to London. They added more people to the list for me to photograph so I spent a day taking portraits.

It felt good to be more confident with my portraits….I followed the steps: research the subjects, arrive early, look for good light, set the camera settings properly, compose carefully and have great portraits in 10 minutes.
