The uncomfortable portrait.

My friend Eldad came over for a chat the other day. I was just setting up for a head shot so I asked him to sit in as a light model. We know each other for over twelve years now. Throughout the years I gathered plenty of photos of him with our friends sharing joint moments. Laughing, dancing, living. When I sat him down for prep something happened. All of a sudden he felt uncomfortable. He kept blinking and stirring and just left after a couple of shots.

I know it’s strange in the first place to have your photo taken, and for some people it takes a lot to allow it. I personally love these test shots. They draw a picture of him some might have not recognised, but I can see him so very clearly.

Muchas gracias and to be continued, Hombre!
