    Hi everyone,

    I'm just starting to learn about photography but with every step of learning I get I notice I'm getting drag by a personal interest into portraits and photo journalism.

    I would like to take some photos of my grandfather and also of some elderly people very dear to me and then try with some strangers. I think that with time some of us become better and some of us just keep become more of the same.

    If you where going to take portraits of elderly people how would you do it?

    Do you have pictures, please share them in here :D

    I have seen people taking natural looking portraits other over using the dragan effect. Also another photographer takes pictures of the elderly only from a low angle in order to show them respect.

    What is your approach?
