Larry was my 7th portrait from my project and I struggled to cope with the bright low sunlight. I had the same problems with Seg two portraits previously. Looking back, I was technically inept at dealing with high contrast bright sunlight. I would now use a helper holding a diffuser, use fill flash to even the contrast in the scene, or better still seek out the shade. In this picture I solved the problem by going in close so that there was no huge range between face and background. Larry has a really strong and interesting face that can easily stand close scrutiny. Having coffee and biscuits with Larry in his allotment was a red high point of the project for me !
