Portrait Photography

Nadav Kander is a Portrait photographer. He captures key members of society all over the world. For instance this its Barack Obama the first black president of America. He was elected in 2009. This photo has hard lighting, with the light on his forehead and the dark bags underneath his eyes, the exposure is correct. This photo was taken before he became president and I think he is nervous about taking control of the United States. His body posture is up right like he is paying attention to something maybe the results of the vote. The way he is focused on something which could suggest that he is thinking about what he is going to do and achieve over the next couple of years. Nadav has captured him from the side, this gives the photo a natural feel. The mood thats given off by this photo is power and defeat as he knows that he will embark on a journey though war and peace and people will die.
