Head-shot portrait of Rizwan

photo: a portrait shot, tight around Rizwan's head; he is looking at the camera from an angle, smiling — no sign of self-consciousness.

Location: Birmingham & Worcester Canal just after Tardebigge.

Date: Saturday 27th June 1998.

Equipment: Canon EOS 50e with 85mm f/1.8 USM lens.

Emulsion: Fujifilm NPH 400.

Keywords: portrait, smile, outdoors, sunlight.

Notes: I love this portrait. The sharpness and detail are incredible and, despite strong, direct sunlight and a total absence of fill flash, the whole of Rizwan's face has been exposed perfectly.
