The last day of the year! Reflecting on 2015…

A Natural Man

I photographed a friend last Sunday and even though it rained that morning we were able to take a few shots outdoors behind my home, where there is a mini forest.  In my last post I mentioned that I prefer taking photos in natural light, so I took advantage of it that day. Again, a…
