portrait52: Simona / by Arnab Ghosal

So it's been a while since I have written a post. It's been a very busy year so far and as well as continuing with the 100 Strangers project, at the start of 2017 I started a new project with the aim of taking on average one portrait a week for the whole of 2017. Now that I am half way through the year I can say its been a really enjoyable experience so far. While it hasn't always been easy to keep it going I am pretty much on track.

It all started with Simona, a friend from work. We decided to go for a walk one lunch time and I had my camera with me with the intention of bagging a stranger portrait. I found the location and needed to find someone. I knew what colours I wanted my subject to be wearing but soon realised that Simona's stylish winter outfit was the perfect compliment to the background.

Thank you very much Simona for getting me started on the project.
