How to Capture Authentic Portraits of People by Sean Tucker


This is a really interesting and thoughtful lesson/discussion by professional photographer and videographer Sean Tucker. He opens the video by talking about the most famous photo of WWII British leader Winston Churchill. Once you watch the video you'll most likely instantly recognize the image. It was done by Yousuf Karsh. Karsh is widely regarded to be one of the most important portrait photographers ever. We learn how this amazing picture was captured and how Karsh was able to capture the spirit of Mr. Churchill.

Sean goes on to discuss experiences he's had in his own studio. He explains how people respond to having their picture taken and how to take a portrait that truly captures your subject. It's a great watch and you can check it out below.
