|Photograph Michael Kircher 2012.|
Simple, straightforward portrait by my friend Mike Kircher on a recent outing to the Colorado mining town of Silverton. Peppered with bars and cafes we found respite in a small brewery called the Avalanche cafe.
Mike and I set to discussing portraiture, and successful photo techniques. Which led to this intimate image, made much more so by the tight crop that I have employed often in my own work. This proximity brings the viewer in close, and having good rapport with your subject is evident in this type of approach.
Prime lenses help as they are small, compact and above all honest!
Thanks for the great pic Mike!
