Thank you, Mike,

An excellent link. I hadn't seen it as I joined sometime after that time frame.

I would recommend that if available any portrait artist who is struggling with reference photography read it.

I am lucky. In my part of the country we have many, many major photography studios and 100's of professional photographers. I was in the furniture photography business and became friends with many of the photographers. In addition we have several good techncal schools that have courses on photography. Because of my location I found it easy to take an advanced course in photography with some emphasis on portrait photography.

Your link points out one of the most important steps and that is to practice which will allow one to see and think and not focus too heavily on just getting the shot.

Thanks again Mike.
