This gorgeous, natural light, image was created in one of my favorite spots in Montgomery County, MD near the Rockville Civic Center. Late afternoon light was speckling through the foliage in the background, providing a beautiful background for this portrait. Taking advantage of a patch of indirect sky light in front of the subject, I opened up one of my favorite Nikon portrait lenses to a wide aperture of 2.8, and posed this young man in a very natural manner leaning in to the lens.
We had just enough sky light out front to register in his eyes to capture an intimate moment. Love the column to the left, and the rim light in his hair and on the side of his face. This little guy , Adrian, is so adorable!
