Action

READY SET GO

Take action!  It is portrait week!  Today take a portrait of someone 'in action' or doing an activity they love!  If you cannot find a willing subject or model, use yourself!  I love almost all outdoor activities. I chose to show myself in hiking mode.

If you so choose, you can also jazz it up a bit by using Rembrandt Lighting for added drama. 

Rembrandt Lighting takes its name from the famous Dutch Painter Rembrandt van Rijn. It is a dramatic lighting technique using sharp contrast between light and dark.  It can be achieved using one light source. It doesn't have to be fancy!  I shot this photograph in my garage using a single light source from the open garage door and a black back drop!
