He's Got Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

This is my friend, R. I know him via a complex network of people who eventually lead his daughter to be one of my classes' favorite models. She and her friends often come to be in pictures for us during the sessions we learn to see light and make flattering portraits. It's always a hoot to have the studio full of teenagers--reminds you of how carefree life used to be.

Anyway, R. often comes along with his camera and makes fun images, too. Last night he was attending one of my classes as a student himself and we made these pictures together at the end of the day.

See, R. got some hard news yesterday, and was beginning to feel the gravity of it. I think it's important to record important events, and R. agreed, and the import of the event was showing in his face.

However, one thing that always amazes me about R., is how quickly his face lightens when he talks about those girls of his. And this case was no different. As soon as he thought about the girls, a smile spread on his face and his whole demeanor changed. He's a caring dad, and nothing gets in the way of that.
