Capturing the Truth in Portraits: Complexity and Shadows

My name is Barbara, and I've been taking photos for years. Portraits are my thing. I don't want them scrubbed or sanitised or over-edited. I want them true to the person they are capturing. I want them raw and complex, but still beautiful and simple. My three kids, who are fifteen, twelve and seven, are mu favourite subject, and, in some ways, taking their photos is something that brings us closer and helps me to see them. I love to write, so I decided to put this together. It's everything you need to know about photography. If you see a mistake or a typo, forgive me – I'm usually writing between editing pics while my kids are bouncing about or playing video games. Thanks for reading. Barbara.
