Introduction to portraiture.

One of the first tasks I have been set with my new University tutor is to take one portrait of a person we are close to. I chose to photograph my Dad as we have a really close relationship. I didn’t want my portrait to be just a headshot, I wanted to show a side of my father’s personality. Ever since I can remember he has always been a motorbike lover, and he spends hours fixing his 1960s Sunbeam in his spare time. I decided to photograph him one afternoon whilst he was busy working on his motorbike in his garage.

  1. I really like the light in this one. There is a strong sense of passion that flows through the highlights – the hands – and where it ends up on the majority of the motorbike.
