Hey everyone! I come primarily from a landscape and sort of abstract street background and haven't had much practice with formal portraiture. I've played with portraits in the past but just never was able to get results I've enjoyed with 35mm. So a few months ago, I invested in a Mamiya RB67 and a Yashica D to try and teach myself some basic portraiture.

I don't really believe in formal/studio portraits, so everything is lit naturally and pretty much taken off the cuff. I'm a little apprehensive with directing my subjects thus far, but I think that'll change once I get more experience. I'd love to know your thoughts, everyone!
