Paul Hood, Portrait Photographer at Work


Here's a picture of Paul hard at work retouching a photo of a spiritual counseling and healing team that he did a long time ago. We're getting some postcards done to remind the locals that we exist and the only version of this photo we had was reduced down for the web.

Paul set up the shot in one of our favorite locations, set the timer, and then would jump in front of the camera, grab me and grin. It was a lot of fun and we were amazed that, under the circumstances, any of them came out. But I think that really is the key to good portrait photography -- getting the subject to loosen up and let their inner beauty come out and shine. We love this shot because we felt good when the picture was taken and we think it shows.
