"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

A year of 50 posed portraits with only one light; a project designed to improve my camera work while blessing the people I encounter. You can see older portraits here, read the rules of the project here, or leave a comment below with your feedback.

    Wait, is this Eli?! I think I met him at Rand today!

    Lovely use of the sky. And I don’t know if you’ve noticed this or not, but when I first saw this as a smaller thumbnail in my feed reader, it looked like he was hanging onto the moon… which needless to say was rather cool.

      I hadn’t noticed the moon-hanging! Thanks for commenting. The sky was kind of perfect for this. I just grabbed my umbrella and snapped a couple. One of the easiest lit pictures I’ve ever gotten.
