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.
