This past weekend, I visited my girlfriend Christina in Cincinnati, OH. We try and see each other a couple of times as month. My parents’ jobs with the airlines definitely make that easier! Christina and I woke up one morning and the lighting in her room was perfect, so I asked if I could take a few window light portraits of her. The soft light coming through the blinds illuminates her face and eyes so well. I really like photographing natural beauty, because it is so underrepresented and under appreciated in the media today. I plan on doing an entire project centered around this theme, and I hope that Christina can participate because of her intense natural beauty. Portraiture is one of my favorite genres of photography, and I’m really looking forward to using the studio here at USC’s journalism school to practice using professional equipment to light my photographs.
