smiling steve

My friend Steve does work that requires him to have new headshots all the time so we went around town snapping to see if we could get anything he could use for a couple of upcoming job auditions.  We got a couple of decent shots - but I just really struggle with portraits.  How do you get the skin tone the same with different light conditions, how do you get genuine smiles out of people (even if you know them) how do you find just the right backdrop and blur.  Let's just say I do much better with architecture and landscapes ... All that said, we had a great day from the Art Institute to Millennium Park, cocktails at the Wit, walking the west loop and capping it all off with dinner @ The Publican - yum!! steve5_2014
