I took this studio portrait in 1991 (at least I think it was then). When this young man was only aged about 3 or 4 years old. He is now in his early twenties and the father of two children himself.
He is my eldest nieces second oldest child and a great young man. I think that I used just one studio light for this shot, with two reflectors to bounce some light back into his face. A light fixed with a large white diffuser. I have perhaps printed it slightly too dark to bring out the tonal range (especially in the skin tones).
It was printed up on Ilford fibre based glossy photographic paper (no toning).

From no specific project as such, circa 1991.
