For this portrait in the style of Alec Soth I primarily focused on three things, light, truth, and story. In some ways this image was taken somewhat unexpectedly. I knew I wanted to create a portrait, with strong narrative, but was not going to do it when I did. However, everything came into place perfectly.
Whilst waiting an hour for a train home from a long day hiking in the British Countryside, the lighting was perfect, and the story was there. The day was spent exploring the countryside, and my friend was tired. This exposed a side to the camera not often seen. I worked with this to create a truthful, honest, yet beautiful portrait portraying the day we had.
I think this image encapsulates Soth's approach to not only portraiture, but also his approach to photography and creating a story as a whole.
