A Black & White image that I captured of my friend's grandfather one 4th of July. He was sitting inside of a garage as I was walking by. With my camera in hand I knew I had to capture him. I had to act fast because I didn't want him to move. This is what I came up with...

Thank you

Behind The Lens

Location
Believe it or not I took this image inside of a garage.
Time
It was afternoon one year on the Fourth of July.
Lighting
I loved the way the light was at the moment. I only had seconds to make the capture.
Equipment
I shot this image handheld using my Nikon D300 and a Nikon 85mm f/1.4 with available light.
Inspiration
I must’ve watched Cliff Maunter’s How to photograph beautiful brides. To me everything just seemed right at that moment. Pictured is the late grandfather of a friend of mine. I think he passed the next year. He was just sitting down in the opening of a garage. This image just happened to just hit me as I was walking by with my camera. I kinda wanted to catch him off guard because if he moved it could’ve changed the dynamic of the image.
Editing
I used Lightroom to decrease the blacks, crop and enhance the clarity.
In my camera bag
Usually I’ll just carry my Nikon D750 with a 50mm f/1.8.
Feedback
Find something that you love shooting. Capture in a way that speaks to you. Everything that you see in your canvas. Paint the picture with you camera and tell a story. Then, share it with the world.
