Kerins Portrait


I photographed my friend Adam Dirnberger for my portrait assignment.  Adam was a willing subject, but we both found it to be difficult to poise for and take photos for a portrait.  Trying to snap candid pictures of another person who knows that the camera is pointed directly at them creates an uncomfortable tension between photographer and subject.  Luckily, I got Adam talking about his day, classes, meetings, and etc. which gave him something to focus on instead of the camera.  Most of the better images in my roll were taken once Adam began to converse.  I’m really please with this particular image, especially since Adam’s relaxed body language reflects his personality. The background is interesting, but not so much that the viewer only sees the trees/ building.  I know that images aren’t suppose to cut off body parts, however I felt like this image had a different feel, even though the image cuts off part oh his head.
