While I often include personal objects, text, or other symbols to build personal narrative, this quiet moment of basking in each other’s devotion indulges a simpler composition.
I do not pose my subjects. In fact, I ask them to not look at the camera. I’m interested in their natural state. I want them to forget I’m there, be themselves.
I was drawn to the afternoon light and contrasting dark couch in this composition. Painting the white clothes was surprisingly gratifying – ‘yummy’ with all of those colors showing up in the shadows.
