Portrait #1

September 25, 2012

I took this photo of Ryan at my cousin's wedding in June. He was posed beside me looking dapper in front of that amazing wallpaper and I - in my typical pushy manner - asked if I could take his portrait. It came out better than I anticipated:
- I'm proud of the use of natural light - he was sitting next to a window on a bright early evening
- I'm thrilled with the textural contrasts - the fibrous vest, the silk tie, the flat paper
- The colors are delicious - Kodak Portra 800 film

Thus begins my portrait series, which is separate from my 100 strangers project...oh yeah, remember that list I made? I've got to get back on track!
