i title this one “daily sweetness” for a few reasons. one of them being that this man was so kind and sweet to me once i finally approached him. i had been sorta stalking him through my lens from the next table over… taking a break in the shade while my dad drank another beer. his back was towards me and i must have sat there for fifteen minutes with my d60 planted to my face, waiting for that perfect profile profile shot… or so i was thinking. my dad kept asking why i didn’t just ask him if i could take a picture of him. i explained to him that that just isn’t my style…
well i must say that if it wasn’t for my dad, i probably never would’ve created this image. for it was him that said to the man once i had walked away, “Hey brother, you mind if my daughter takes a picture of you…?” the man responds, “well, of course not!” and then my dad shouts, “HEY TRISH!…. get back over here”

it was my daily dose of sweetness.


probably the nicest person i met that day, and that says a lot because there wasn’t one bad soul there!!

    That’s an amazing portrait photo!
    Those are indeed the moments you need to use to make great photos.
    And the use of those moments is what makes a great photographer.
    Congrats on this one!

  • many thanks!! i learned a very, very valuable lesson with this one… and that’s to never ever be hesitant to ask to take a photo of someone. i almost lost that chance, if it weren’t for my dad.

    Wide aperture, loads of charisma and energy in the profile and appearance of this person and this is the way to capture it at its best !
    Great work, Tricia.

  • coming from you, Milos.. i’m flattered. your work is amazing!
