Your first task is to review the below web links and make a blog post stating your thoughts, reactions, suppositions, etc.
This web page is presented by photographer Eddie Bonfigli and, as he states, "is intended as a brief and general outline of how" he approaches portraiture.
I like this page because the information given contradicts some of what Eddie Bonfigli. I think that this information is just as valid.
Finally, Digital Camera World gives this sound advice on ways to avoid making common mistakes when shooting portraiture.
Due Friday, January 10, is the blog post with your newly-gained insight and three stunning portraits.
