I had an amazing day yesterday because I finally got to be behind the lens again! The best part though was because it wasn’t just for wandering around at home. I talked a good friend into coming down to my hometown and I did a set of portraits.
It had been a really long time since I had been given an opportunity to actually think about posing and people. If I had shot anything lately, it was all travel pictures and candid shots. I’m not saying that it isn’t good practice, or that I don’t enjoy it because I truly do. Sometimes its nice though to interact with another person and shoot a little differently. Needless to say, we had a blast, and I think the images really speak for themselves.

“All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.”
― Susan Sontag
