Self Portrait with Staff
With all my children out of the house and my wife working my days at my home office are punctuated by a few video conferences and the needs of my office buddy, Darcy. He is a great cat and seems to know just when I need a break or he needs a treat. In between I manage my four companies, a wide range of client projects, and work with TechBrick Robotics as its executive director.

Assignment: Welcome to the portrait challenge creative Framers! You can choose if you want to ask a stranger if you can take her portrait, do a self-portrait or take the portrait of a friend, family member or acquaintance. Edward Steichen said that “A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.” So take your time to first hang out and chat with your model. Any stiffness and uncomfort will be always visible in the photo. Also make sure that you know where your light sources are and pay attention how the light falls on your model’s face.
