10-minute Portrait Challenge | Emi

Being a photographer in the winter can be a bit rough-- simultaneously playing catch up with personal photography projects and pining for warm weather so you can book shoots. This winter I joined the Tribe Collective photography group on Facebook and it has inspired me to think about photo editing-- and occasionally photography itself-- in new ways (or remember old ways). They periodically have photo challenges, and I have been entering a few of them as they come up. In collaboration with Ryan Muirhead, Tribe Collective presented a portrait challenge that I just loved.

Challenge: portraits in 10 minutes with the first minute spent nailing the settings, only shooting the photo when you're "ready" to take it, and no looking at the camera screen after each shot.

Bonus: Emi's neon ghost light makes a cameo!
