Harold was a fabulous sitter for many reasons; he had a good idea about what he wanted to achieve but was also genuinely interested in the process and what was needed to get the shot that I was aiming to create. A student at The University of Bristol, Harold was looking for some headshots for his already impressive online presence.
The sitting has resulted in a number of images with different backgrounds and subtly different expressions. Unusually though asking the sitter not to smile was a departure; actually I have been in a similar situation once before with my own daughter who got the giggles. A naturally ‘smily’ person Harold responded well to direction and was also patient enough to allow me to get the lighting ‘just right’.
