Ritter Center Portraits

with 18 comments

If you’ve been following this blog you know that the Ritter Center in San Rafael is one of my favorite organizations. The Center serves a wide variety disadvantaged people, including the homeless and families living on the edge of absolute poverty. A good description of the Center’s work is on its blog.

Recently I did a series of portraits of Ritter Clients. My little Olympus OM-D E-M1 did a good job of it. Bloggers who write about photography like to say it’s not the camera, it’s the photographer. But sometimes it is the camera and beautiful subjects. All I did was push the button.

Look closely and see the beauty in their souls.

  1. Nice work Ron, I think you are too humble – it’s not the camera.

    • Yes it is. I’m a technician. I know how to get the exposure right and work Lightroom. The rest depended on the camera and the subjects.

  3. You did a lot more than press a button: you saw them.
