Today’s Photo Friday entry is entitled: Portrait © Jan Marshall
For a number of years I was the “official photographer” for my friend Manuel and his family. I would take the pictures and then give the prints and the negatives to him. That’s the only real portrait work I’ve ever done.
As I no longer possess any of those pictures, I had no idea of what I wanted to post for this week’s entry. I have lots of pictures that could qualify as a portrait, but I couldn’t get past thinking about my Manuel portraits. In looking through my computer files to see what I had that I could use, I found a single picture from one “photo shoot” I did back in May of 2004. It was hiding in a file called “Friends To Be Sorted”. I’m not even sure when I uploaded it. It was a digital picture I took to check the lighting and the background before taking the “real pictures” with my standard 35 mm camera. I was delighted to see that it even existed.
This is Manuel and his daughter, just standing in the space…waiting for the shoot to begin.
Mi amigo Manuel y su hija.
As “luck” would have it, today just happens to be Manuel’s birthday. Happy birthday Manuel!!
