Kicking off 2019 with a bang, the next subject I have photographed for the photography series, this photo-set being the first for 2019, is my close friend, Patrick Connolly.
As these photos were taken on New Year’s Eve given I was at a New Year’s Eve Party to ring in 2019, these photos were taken in low-light conditions, and with surprising results, these photos came out better than I expected.
A fraction of some of these photographs were normal headshots, while some of the photographs were off-guard facial expressions Patrick made that he probably wouldn’t necessarily make if this involved him looking directly at the camera. It’s often the off-guard photographs that are the best photos.
I hand-picked three of the photos from this photo-set to upload to Instagram beforehand and they’ve gone down a storm after I changed them to black and white with surprising results!
I’m pleased with how these photos turned out and I’m quite amazed that the low-lighting with the flash on compensated the photos in such a way that they stand out really well.
If there’s any improvements I could make, please let me know as your feedback will really help me to improve on the photo-sets I produce in the future.
