Photography & travel tips from an award-winning photographer, educator & wanderlust

Portrait: Aaron

Sometimes shooting through windows and doors can create some innovative scenes. Though some of these pictures may look like a double exposure (combining 2 images in camera or in post production), they are not. Shot through open, clear glass doors and strategically placed angles create the illusion of small mystery or even confusion.

The choice for monochrome color comes from the idea of clutter elimination and less so from trying to make them appear artistic. From my perspective a red roof of the building behind him would have taken the viewer’s eye away from our subject. And a mix of green plants with the red roof did not create the theme that I was going for.

While these photographs would probably not be used as professional headshots, they can illustrate a young, creative professional ready to conquer the world!
