Most of my portraits were taken in natural light using a tripod. In order to maintain depth of field, most images were taken at slow speeds (1/2-1 sec exposures). This slows time, develops a meditative state, and in my perception, helps in reaching the essence of the subject. People project what they want you to see, so if you are open and trusting, then there is work to be created. The key is true interest and listening, often what is not said is more important than what is. Then it is possible for resonance to occur between two people. For me, it is a feeling that I get, and a sound in my head. NOW!!! This is the moment!! (Click).
