Learning my own Portraits Shot

If you are a friend that I know for long, you would not wonder the many pictures I posted in here. It is because photography is just one of the hobby that I am really into and I could never get bored. I had been doing just ordinary photos before through film that cost me a lot of money for the good and the many bad results. There was no mentor and no books to read. I just go with what I feel and shoot hoping for the best ones but majority, it didn't look like those professional pictures taken in studio. What I learned from that experience is not on the quality of pictures I got but the memories behind the photos. Those things had been on going until I got married and not so happy with my photos. The shots were great but there was just no editing on the bad pictures. Until then, I got hooked with photoshop and photography itself. It's almost 10 years now but I only learned some few shooting tips when I bought my Nikon D80 year 2008. From that time on, I never really tweaked my camera. It was last year when I said I need to make the most of my camera. I bought some books and read some stuff online. I did learn in day to day basis. I had lots of bad pictures and with that I got frustrated at times and it's helpful in learning how to take better ones.

Anyway, there are many fields in photography and areas of interests. What I am into is portraits. So I started buying some accessories to build up my gear so I can do some portraits shot and learn by it as the shots progress. For today's event, I got my umbrella, its bracket and reflector. I only use the umbrella and bracket with the SB-600 flash and just the kit lens using Nikon D80 body. Here's my shot for the day.

This is the perfect webpage for everyone who hopes to understand this topic.
You understand so much its almost tough to argue with you
(not that I actually would want to…HaHa). You certainly
put a new spin on a subject that's been written about for a long time. Excellent stuff, just wonderful!
