- I enjoy photographing landscapes and nature,…but pictures with people are much more important.…Every time you photograph a person,…you make a valuable picture that is automatically…treasured by that person's family and friends.…And the more time passes, the more that photo…will be admired and cherished.…I've shown you many ways to create portraits…with different moods and feelings.…And I've shown you how you can do it with a single light.…You are ready to start making pictures.…The most important thing you can do…to make better portraits is to practice.…
You need to practice manipulating your light…so you know just exactly what it will do…in all kinds of situations.…Once you've got the light under control,…you need to make as many pictures as possible with people.…Each time you shoot, I recommend making…one more picture with a completely different mood.…It may be a keeper, or it may never see the light of day,…but it will help you keep your eye…for different kinds of light sharp and ready.…Thank you so much for joining me.…
