Is your camera half full or half empty?

Above: Image by Gina Milicia Fuji XT-3 “We don’t see things as they are. We see them as we are.” -Anais Nin Are you an optimist or a pessimist? How you perceive the world and everything that happens around you will have a huge impact on the type of portraits you take. If you are a positive person who always tries to find the good in every situation your portraits will probably reflect that. A pessimist is always looking for the negative in every situation and so if you see the glass as half empty your portraits may reflect the darker side of the models you photograph. I like to think I’m a fairly optimistic person and seek out the positive side of people I photograph. I’m constantly seeking out ways to flatter the people I photograph and make them appear positive and beautiful and joyful.
