This image of Nate was shot specifically for a group exhibition last year. Entitled “1 to 10”, the exhibition involved 10 photographers covering the ages 1 through 10. I was given age 5. I didn’t know Nate at all when I took this image, which can be a little challenging when they are as shy as he was. Once I had him talking about star wars, though (he likes the baddies best), he started to become a little more relaxed and I ended up with an interesting shot.
Lighting – one flash head shot through a large square soft box, right of camera at 45 degree angle.
