Portraiture does not figure prominently in my archives. In fact, this is the only example I have of a studio portrait. It was taken about thirty years ago – before the days of digital cameras and processing. I was attending a week’s residential course at Exeter University. Each course member was allocated a 30 minutes studio slot and a university student was employed as a model. We each chose our preferred pose and arranged the lighting. I am ashamed to say that I cannot remember the model’s name but I was quite pleased with my first (and only) experience of studio portraiture.
