Because Father’s Day. Environmental portraits.

Once someone told me that my dad is the most honest man he’s ever met. Oh, I was so proud to hear that, and those words got stuck to my brain :). It’s true, he is, that’s why maybe the first thing I look for in people and appreciate is honesty. In Romania we don’t celebrate father’s day. I have no idea why, as we do celebrate mother’s day (in a very communist manner though, on the 8th of March, which is also International Day of Women). But since I am in the US, and all I could hear today was Father’s Day, I thought a post dedicated to my dad would be just the right thing to do.

I have taken these pictures in March, last time I went home. When it comes to portraits, I don’t like posing. I prefer to ‘catch’ people in their natural environment, or in a genuine moment, and I do that by just engaging in genuine conversation while photographing. I really love these pictures of my dad at work. The atelier was quite dark, but had a nice small window letting some beautiful natural light creep in. I took the pictures with my Fuji x100S, on auto ISO, and I likes so much the Jpeg version (I shoot both Raw and Jpeg), that I didn’t see any need to make changes. These are the files straight from the camera (except for the portrait version, that was taken in the kitchen while we were having a conversation).

Happy Father’s Day to my lovely dad!
