Challenge for Pictures in a Series: Motif or Concept Portraits in Natural Light

Asher Kelman

OPF Owner/Editor-in-Chief
This is Marcella, wonderful person I met about a decade back and have worked with her, on and off since!

This wasn’t even a portrait session. She was visiting and we were about to have some English tea as is my custom late afternoon!

Share you own ad hoc or formal portrait in natural light!

Kate and I collaborated for years. What a fine person.

I did most work with her in the late afternoon when the sun had gone over our house and shone from the northern windows.


Asher Kelman: “Kate”
Wonderful Asher. I love portraits in natural light, seems to be so flattering and kind. How lucky you are that for all these years she still comes around. And didn't know you had an afternoon ritual of having tea!
