Day 10 – Portrait of my neighbor


A few years ago, I got a zany idea that I would like to do portraits of a bunch of my neighbors. The first neighbor I tried went back to her home country and it took almost 2 years to get her to pose (she is the mother in law of my neighbor and visits here a month or so every year). The next neighbor was this gentleman. It seems he was shy and I was shy and it took a force of God (his wife) to finally get him to pose for some reference photos. I am happy about how it came out.. and she is too. This is a full sized portrait. I do portrait commissions of people and pets too. In case you’re interested. Thanks for all your comments, I really appreciate them.

  1. I really don’t like asking people to pose, maybe incase they don’t like the result, but you should never worry, you have wonderful results on all your portraits, well done!
