July 10th 2012. Portraits on Vacation.

18 July 2012


I have always considered myself drawn to landscapes, but I admire the portrait photographer, someone who can capture the essence of a person, their true character, essence and even vulnerabilities.





Add in some Rembrandt lighting and Wow!





To my surprise I got the opportunity to take some portraits (albeit with the flaky 5D mark ) of family.

On reflection vacations afford a mixture of having more time, being more relaxed, different locations and backgrounds and finally different clothing.

These images have had no post processing, but I like them because they touch on the essence of each person depicted in my opinion! Do you agree?

So a short blog with more images this week!
