Exercise: Review a portrait sequence




How do you set up a formal session for a portrait sequence in a hotel during a summer holiday in a Greek island? The boy was quite unenthusiastic but I was so eager, so the process began hesitantly. In the introduction of the book “Train your gaze”, Roswell Angier says “A portrait, the result of a consensual process, depends upon the subject’s agreement to be photographed. It assumes a level of trust”. It is amusing that his expression is gradually changing and he even starts to enjoy the process.

The photo below is the one I find the most successful, it is mainly the bright eyes and his serene expression that I like. The photo has been slightly edited.

This was the final image of the session, the boy was tired, the heat was oppressive and I was pleased that at least more than one images were to my satisfaction.
