This seminar-style movie presentation was developed for several talks I gave for Sony Australia in 2018. It looks at my approach to portraiture (primarily on location). I cover my choice of camera settings, choice of lens, how I compose my images and how I control the lighting used so that I can capture powerful portraits. The presentation concludes with a brief look at how I work with off-camera flash.
