Sunset portraits series: Darina
At first I was a little bit intimidated by photographing people; fear of them not liking the photos I guess… Women especially, no matter how beautiful they are, they tend to be over critical with their appearance in pictures. Darina, my colleague, despite being one of the most beautiful woman I know, has the same problem, so you can imagine my happiness when she liked few of the pictures I took of her. We are lucky to work in a beautiful office with a view of the sunset over the Gulf Sea, so we have this gorgeous light every day late in the afternoon.
PS I am impressed with how my little Fuji x100 works for portraits (except maybe the lack of zoom and the fact that I need to go very close to the subject’s face).
