Senior Photographs: Nelson

I had the pleasure of photographing a friend of mine’s grandson.  I have known Nelson for almost 10 years; it is difficult to imagine him as a senior in high school.  To me he will always be the freckled face little boy who liked to ride bikes at the campground.  Nelson has always been a polite young man and I wish the best for him in the future!

Nelson is a sportsman. He enjoys archery, hunting, fishing, boating…you name it!  They chose the location for his senior photographs; a cabin in the woods!  It was about an hour drive from Chillicothe into Hocking County.  It was an ideal location for Nelson’s photographs.  It was on the cool side and the sun was out.  With the dense forest we had a little shadow play from time to time.  Occasionally I called upon my daughter to help with a reflector to help fill in the areas if the shadows were too strong.

You can see how the reflector fills in the shadows to help produce more even lighting on the subject.

As mentioned above, Nelson is an excellent marksman particularly in archery.  He has won many awards and is ranked high in his age group. He has enjoyed deer hunting since he was a young boy.

Nelson’s brother Logan and step brother Brandon joined Nelson for a few informal photographs too.
