When I bought my first camera, I decided to follow a course for beginners. During the course we had to
photograph all kinds of subjects: architecture, animals, sports, nature, portraits. The last subject hit me the
most: portraits. I think photographing portraits is the biggest challenge, because people don't stand still. You
can't just drop a person the way you want and make a photo of it and you can't always take the time you
need. But all these things make it also more exciting to shoot a portrait. To practice, I asked my friends if
they wanted to model for me.
One of my first shoots was with my good friend May. These photos were made last summer. I wanted to
make pure portraits, but I also wanted to show her character: sweet and joyful.
The photos were made with a Pentax-Km camera and a telephoto lens.
I hope you enjoy!
