The eyes. The flowers. Oh my!

This portrait turned out a bit more yellow than I like because of a bit of tungsten light cross over but I’m very happy with Christopher’s pose and my composition of the shot. The two of us spent an hour working together in the studio, trading off as photographer and model. As always, Christopher is excellent in front of the camera and I really admire his willingness to do (almost) anything.

There is a HUGE difference in working in concentration with one person in front of the camera. I’ve really gotten away from doing portraits in this way over the past year, and I have to change this.
