Nathan is a Senior at Hamilton High School in Chandler, Arizona. We made the drive to Queen Creek to take advantage of an old abandoned warehouse and some farmland for his senior portraits. I keep asking myself why photographers like old broken things and the best thing I can come up with is that we love texture. I think I also have an interest in the history of an object or a location.
I love the drama on this shot. No lights, just one large door opening up to a large bay with indirect light filtering through. There is a lot of volume in the image.
Softer light as we headed out into the bay, which was perfect to capture this genuine smile.
I thought the guitar shots needed a little funkification, so I went for a slight cross process look. I think it worked well.
Needless to say, this lone tree was calling to me as we shot.
I love the warmth of this sunset. It just feels like the world is on fire. And Nathan… doesn’t care…
