Environmental portraits are something I've always struggled with. Even when I took them for my black and white classes, something always went wrong. Since I seem to have a not-so-good history with environmental portraits, I was pretty nervous going into this. I chose to photograph the owner of Off the Avenue Antiques in Coraopolis. I really enjoy this shop and every time I've visited, the owner always seems really nice. I wasn't super happy with what I got, but the first one is definitely my favorite. I'm definitely lacking in variety of poses, but the other ones I took (including one of another employee at the shop) didn't turn out as well. I still enjoyed the assignment and hopefully with practice I'll continue to get more comfortable with environmental portraits.
