Portraits that tell who you are

November 10, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

These two photos, are my favorite portraits of Koy and I. I took them, rather instantly, though when I realized the scenery in which we were sitting, I immediatley had a clear vision in mind. Last year, Koy went into Happy Tats, for a tattoo. When we found ourselves waiting for a few moments, I in my stool and Koy looking at himself in front the mirror, I simply asked him to look at me through the mirror, and fired off these two shots.



The first, I feel is a little bit of a safer portrait, we are clearly visible, and the lighting is softer.

In the  second photo, I intentionally fired the on camera flash, knowing it would burst off of the mirror, I thought this would be a fun way to play off a crazy facial expression and add a little more chaos to an already busy photo. I love the hard lighting and the burst of flash introduced into the frame, even accentuating some grime on the mirror in front of me.


The reason I love these photos so much is that there is so much to look at, and they truly speak volumes about us, the subjects. My love of photography is clearly illustrated, our children are pictured: both in Koy's current tattoos, and the to be tattooed that hangs to his left side. Since we didn't know we would take a portrait on this day, we both had on average clothing and looked how we typically look on a daily basis.It's just so natural, and so US. A portrait does not have to be matchy or perfect to be beautiful. A better portrait is a true expression of who you are, telling your story to it's viewers.
