I really like the creativity of your portraits they seem to capture the personality of the subject in each shot. How do you balance getting the "perfect shot" in terms of light, composition, etc... While managing to capture your subjects on such a personal level? I tend to get bogged down in the F\Stops and Shutter Speeds.
My approach is to lock down the technical stuff then I can focus on the creativity and the personalities. Of course learning the technical stuff takes time, but it's great to get it out of the way to focus on the fun stuff.
