JEREMY SNELL (USA)
Young photographer with huge and really amazing photostream on flickr.
He shared this great portrait with us:
I used my friend's 5D markII with a 50mm 1.4 lens for this shot. This is typically my favorite setup for portraits. This was also in natural light. My photo bag consists of a Canon T2i body, 50mm 1.4 lens, 85mm 1.8 lens, 28mm 1.8 lens, and several Speedlights.
3Q/ What do you love most about shooting portraits?
Portraits are by-far my favorite thing to shoot. There's something attractive, distinct, and emotional about capturing someone through the lens. You're able to capture a single moment in their life but also see a glimpse of their history, persona, and being.
4Q/ Do you consider yourself mostly as a “portrait” photographer?
Yes. Photography would be significantly less important to me without portraits. Capturing people is very different from any other type of photography. To me, it's the most interesting.
