Photo :: A man, made of wonder

A friend of Courtenay Martin's caught mid-conversation in a casual portrait.

Listen, I’ve known this man nearly all my life, but I’ve never shot a picture of him. He’s an amazing person— funny, brilliant, wickedly talented, yet so incredibly kind. So, the other day when we were having a late lunch, I pulled out my phone and asked him if I could shoot a few pictures.

This is one of them.

  1. Black and white photography is not only striking – it’s starkness can really reveal so much

  2. I’ve never been able to relax in front of a camera and the only good shots of me have always been candid camera ones. Go you!

    1. Thanks, Meeka! I don’t think your predicament is unusual. What I try to do when someone is uncomfortable is give them something to fiddle with while I take his/her picture. Being able to wear a hat or hold a weird object can go a long way to making us feel like we’re playing instead of taking pictures. That’s my theory, anyway.

Hey there, Cupcake! How are ya?
