North Facing Window

One thing there hasn't been much of in my photo portfolio is portraits. So when a friend needed some informal candids, I jumped at the chance.

I put her in a chair in front of a north facing window.

Tried to make her comfortable and used my fake photographer's laugh. Or did I? Maybe I just said something goofy.

Things were going well.

Then she asked "do you know what you're doing?"

Then I showed her the shots in the camera.

But really, it wasn't me, it was the subject.


  1. Those are great! I need for you to take some of Rob. He just gives me a goofy grin when I try to do it.

  2. these are great! , gentle and very personable looking photo's, I bet she loved them!

  3. The last one is perfect! She looks so natural and relaxed!

  4. Really good photos. I agree with Gretchen, she looks very relaxed - not posed.

    Two questions:
    1. Why a north facing window?
    2. How did the grapes taste?

  5. Light from a north facing window is not harsh. It provides a glow that is flattering...the grapes were yummy and retained their fresh fruit texture. Everyone who's tried them has loved them.

    Kudos to Molly Wizenberg (original source and Smitten Kitchen!).
