Tutorial Edgy Portraits By Richard Spears

This is from four years ago. I was a member of a photography group, and they wanted me to share my technique for producing the “Edgy Portraits” like the Firefighter pictures in the blog. There’s an inside joke here that I should explain. There was a member in the Digital Photography School forum who used to make fun of my wedding photography business because my pricing was considerably lower than his pricing. His pricing for a wedding started at about $5K. He didn’t think much of my work or my business, and he would refer to me as the “Walmart Photographer” because of my low prices. I didn’t let him get under my skin and proudly owned the “Walmart Photographer” title.

So here’s my technique that I learned from Joel Grimes. Check Joel Grimes Website – Click here
