I know that I haven't really been posting much of my personal photos besides bad quality pictures of my outfits, but I decided that I might as well share some of my portraits of other people or objects.
As I still live at home with my parents and brother, I have constant access to potential models; I am especially fortunate that my brother is one of the most photogenic people I know and a possible model (biased, maybe. But it's the truth). He is always willing to pose for hours on end for me in front of one of the plentiful white walls in my house; a brilliant backdrop for any basic photoshoot. 
My current photographer obsession is Terry Richardson, not the creepiness, but the simplistic black and white style and the 'hipster' black glasses frame. 
One saturday during the holidays, I was so busy procrastinating doing my homework that I told my brother that I was going to take photos of him. Obviously, the thought delighted him so he was my muse for the day. 

I own a Nikon D5100 camera and a detachable adjustable Suntek flash. Using just these and Adobe Lightroom, I was able to enhance the photos to a pretty decent standard that I was very happy with!
