Otis the Goatis – Portrait of a Melancholy Ungulate

I have rarely been able to take a good portrait style photo of a person.  I don’t seem to be able to get the subject to relax and it often ends being a little awkward.  Not awkward like Ralph Eugene Meatyard’s portraits, but you get the idea.  This (sad to say) is probably my best “portrait” that I have taken.  It’s something that I would like to work on.
