Graduation were the past two weeks so along with that are the long nights studying for finals. I noticed this young man at one of the local coffeehouses. Hope everyone has a great 3 day weekend!
I keep telling myself I must practice more portraits. I tell myself that because I enjoy people and the challenge of lighting and posing. I’ve always felt there are certain photographers who have a knack for relaxing the models and therefore bring out the personality of the person. Only practice will let me know if I have such a gift. This was taken back in February on portrait session with a young man named Dan.
Took this image last week at a local coffee shop while sitting on the outdoor patio, enjoying the nice sunny weather. However, this morning has presented overcast skies and 50 degrees. But, we call that good out here in Colorado. My to do list has nothing listed and plan on keeping it that way.
This is a typical scene in most of the industrialized world. I find people are not aware of most things around them. I’m not sure they are aware of the Red-tailed Hawk sitting in the tree across the street. The song of the robins as they announce the rising sun. The chickadee making it’s two-tone high-low call. The squirrels chasing each other in the tree just behind them. Or the photographer taking their photograph. 🙂
