I can't say that I have any skills at portrait work, since I have never done any. But in some cases, you just have to take portraits, even if they aren't staged. I caught this shot while at a Native American pow-wow in Taos, New Mexico a while back. All these folks were elaborately dressed and made their way into the event during "The Grand Entrance". I elbowed in a little to find a decent spot, and took a few "portraits". This is essentially a straight-out-of-camera shot for me, which as you can probably guess doesn't happen very often! I remember wanting a headress as a kid - I think this could be the one that I would want! Isn't it awesome?
