While I haven't uploaded frequently over the past few months, i've been capturing away. These portraits were taken in a stunning property in the Kensington, Oakland. I just love the cool tones and contrasting warm afternoon light, catching Tana as she allows the sun to dance on her skin.
Capturing portraits is one of my favourite types of photography. The level of intimacy, trust and care that goes into taking these shots is unlike any other. The subject trusts you to shoot them through your lens of course, but more importantly, trusts you to recognise and identify how they feel beautiful. The photographer in turn, turns to the subject completely vulnerable, opening up their energy to welcome and lay bare for it's muse. Essentially, portrait photography captures the moment where the balance shifts from subject to photographer...and back again.
