Sonya

Sonya is an independent theater producer.  All of the Philadelphia-centric theater that she produces can be found at her website — http://juniper.agency.

One of the “mistakes” I knowingly made in this project was sitting close to the portrait sitter so I could have a normal conversation with them.  As a result of this, I was too close to each subject to really maintain the proper distance to be able to step back away from the portrait to double check my work.  After I completed Sonya’s portrait and put my camera lens up to photograph it, I saw that I made the shading under her eyes too dark.  Unfortunately, it wasn’t the last time this happened, either.  But I moved forward, tying to not let perfect be the enemy of good.
