I did take a few portraits at Gately Paper Company in Galveston last Saturday. That was the point of the field trip after all. There were around twenty photographers on this field trip and four different groups of models. I have seen some of the shots taken by some of the other photographers and they are for the most part all better than mine. I'm OK with that: I realize that I'm still learning the portraiture skill set. Because of where I am in my development as a portrait photographer I feel lucky when I have any success at all and the two photos I'm posting today were pretty much all the "luck" I had that night (thanks to Crystal being such a great model).
