Today we are doing a different formula from the usual blog posts we are doing here at Photograph IO. Following numerous reader requests, we have decided to conduct interviews with fellow photographers 🙂 Eric Dye, a semi-pro portrait photographer, is going to give some solid, concrete advice for beginners wishing to improve their photography, specifically portrait photography!

Photograph IO : Hello, Eric! Glad to be with you.
Eric Dye : Greetings! Glad to be with you too!
Photograph IO : To begin, can you introduce yourself a little bit?
Eric Dye : I’m a student at Penn State Behrend where I study journalism and communications. I’ve been shooting for about eight years now on the side doing everything from senior portraits and concerts to weddings. I’m the Creative Director and Opinion Editor for The Behrend Beacon, my school’s newspaper. There I do everything from designing ads and page layouts to teaching new writers basic photography techniques.
