The theme for this week was Night Portrait. For the most part, this image turned out like I planned. I wanted to have my subject under a street light right after the sun had gone down. I wasn’t entirely sure how I was going to pose.
As soon as the street lights came on, I took my little five-year-old out, and I quickly realized that in order to get the light I needed, his face would have to be turned up more than he was comfortable with.
I asked him to look up, and of course, it was starting to rain. He basically thought mom was a little nuts, but you can tell by the expression on his face that he was having fun.
