Black And White Photography, David, Photography

20130303-untitled shoot

Last week I told you what I don’t consider myself good at photographically. Well it’s not that I’m good at portraits either but I like them the most. I would probably run a mile from a model in a studio. I prefer spontaneous shots a little more candid. I like outdoors shots but anywhere will do.

The shot above is of my best mate here in Norway.  The snow is acting as the worlds best reflector  and we were at an old cabin taking a break from snowshoeing.

I took my Hasselblad with me This is the first shot off the roll.

  1. Great shot, David. He looks so comfortable in front of the camera. And so perfectly exposed. I always have a problem with snow! Obviously, you don’t!
