I was honoured to be invited to submit a photographic portrait demo for the Sojie 17 Portrait Workshop . I chose to demonstrate how to do a simple, window lit, black and white portrait, and had a lot of fun doing it. Thanks so very much to Frannie (aka F. A. Moore) for all her work on the workshop and for inviting me to contribute.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    The intensity in her eyes is so enhanced by your choice of simple lighting. Any more would have only reduced the power of this beautiful image. Great. Tony.
