Today’s portrait was taken after church. When the worship service finishes we migrate to a nice covered patio area. Because we have several services, this allows us to interact and visit without holding up the progress of the next worship service.
I’ve known Derek for about 7 years. We worked together at Pacific Camps years ago. He’s a great guy, who loves his family, all children, and God, very much. Derek’s passion for the things of God is evident by observing him for just a short time.
This photo was taken under an overhang at almost noon. I tried for an edgy, direct light shot, but I couldn’t get good settings in short time. So we moved to the shade. It proved to be a good decision. I like the soft light in the shade. I also desaturated this a bit.
