I know what you’re all thinking; has Matthew started doing menswear catalogue shoots? This is my excellent colleague David, and after work on Friday we stopped by this beautifully sunlit river in Glen Fruin on our way home. When I started photography I would have put the sun on David’s face or perhaps as sidelight. Now I recognise good back lighting conditions when I see them and so just pulled out my beaten up reflector and bounced some light back into David’s face. I’m delighted with the portrait. I have added in 2 more for your enjoyment, one closer in, and the last one an afterthought snatched while packing my camera away, so David was even more relaxed by then. The whole portrait shoot was done in 10 minutes, and David was brilliant as a subject.
