Recently I was shooting a full day of head shots for a corporate client andI needed to refresh my way of seeing. It can be challenging to keep my sight fresh on long days and to give each person their own unique experience and portrait. I've got to be able to see each person differently so that I can capture something that is only true about them. One of my go to tricks I use through the day in between subjects is to stop and really look around the space from a new perspective. That may be as simple as trying to look at a wider view and really stretch my peripheral sight or I may get really close to something and look at the smallest details I can see. It may sound ridiculous but I will often climb up on something and look down into a space below or get low and look up. This shot was just that. When I looked up at this hotel ceiling and really looked closely at it I noticed it was much lovelier than I had recognized before. Truthfully I hadn't noticed at all. Whenever I take the time to exercise my seeing muscle in these small ways I consistently find that I can meet my next subject with a renewed energy and greater awareness.
