Portraits of a Man

For Rico, the quiet amusement of my life 
This is a portrait of my husband, Rico. I see him everyday not noticing the constant yet tiny changes that happen in our daily lives. In this portrait series- I love how he steadily gazes  into the not so distant future, a testament of his personality. His mind might wander, but his heart is still. The stillness in this photo echo his quiet confidence. 

Choose a monochromatic photo. Include drama if possible. 
Look at contrast and tonal values

The simplest lines say the most.

Your life is a gift to me and our family. You inspire me to keep moving forward. Looking forward to seeing you grow old and may I continue to capture it for the rest of our lives.  Happy Birthday!
