Tom’s mom spoke the truth:
Tom was, hands-down, the most inventive and active portrait subject this photographer
has been privileged to photograph in a decade. It was a challenge to catch his numerous poses and more of a challenge to catch him un-posing and real. Lots of concentration was used to follow his location moves from the park bench, into the tree, across the river, with body posture changes, and moods of joy and serious-ity that changed in micro-seconds. Getting a clean background, in focus and perfect exposure were also concerns. Happily many of the myriad offered ‘poses’ were successful, and even better, a few honest quiet images appeared in the proofs. Congratulations on your high school graduation Tom!
