For my current photography project for my class at Xavier, we had to photograph a person, using lighting (same basic idea as the flower pictures I posted a few weeks ago). We had to get a “full body” and two parts of the person that explain in some way who they are. I chose to photograph my stepdad, Dean, because (shh!) he used to model back in his 20’s, and I was curious to see what it would be like to photograph him so up close and personal. Even though it only took about 10 minutes, it was a special moment for me as a photographer to photograph someone that plays such an important role in my life. So here’s my photo project of my stepdad!
I know a majority of these are of his hands, but I couldn’t help myself. Do you realize how well hands can tell the story of someone’s life? It’s quite something to look at someone’s hands and imagine what kind of life they’ve been through.
Thanks again, Dean, for letting me capture a little bit of your life in a few photos. I love you!
