Today I had a great day with my Uncle. I wanted to take an environmental portrait of him. He has more hobbies than I can count and is excellent at all of them. Because of that, I thought the portrait session would be easy. Ha! I was wrong. Photographing your own family is quite an adventure. “You’re not doing it right.” “Why don’t you stand over there and shoot.” “You’re not doing enough vertical shots of me.” You get my drift, right?

Finally at the end of the day, when we said we were all done,  I got my shot. This picture to me, is my Uncle. He loves his garden and always has something nice to give me.
