Story Behind The Image #1 - Portrait 1

Hey there,

First of all, welcome to my new website, I hope you enjoy my work. This is a blog post I'll be doing for a while to tell the story behind how some of my photos came to be. Thanks for reading!

I took this photo on Halloween last year, of a classmate at my school at the time, who was wearing some face makeup in an effort to look scary for Halloween. Having just taken some photos in a much brighter setting, when he stood under a can light in the ceiling I accidentally took this very black photo of him, which turned out to be a very interesting and emotional portrait. When we realized what had happened we tried to take more, but none of them were quite the same as the original.
