Color-coordinated

Color-coordinated

This is Emil Ingeson from Österhaninge. I spotted him near the commuter station in Handen a couple of days ago. He is a university student, but not for much longer. He has a Master of Science in Engineering (mathematics and chemistry), and is now also a qualified secondary school teacher, after graduating from a unique course at the royal institute of technology in Stockholm. When I met him he was on his way to the employment service. I asked him if he had any fun hobbies. His answer was short, No, no time for anything but studies for the last few years.Hopefully that will change now. It's a good spot for portrait this. A while back I photographed Nora here.

It is a good spot Steffe, it allows your subject to be the main focus with no distractions. Your guy looks a little 'vintage' like my ladies today. Love his style!

Good light and a simple background. It that red underwear peaking our between the blue and green?

The gray background really makes the colors stand out, although his colors would stand out in most places.

I like this portrait. He may not have any hobbies but, he is a colorful dresser.

He understands colors so well. And so neatly.

What a well-educated man! I hope he can say it was all worth it... :) I hope it lands him somewhere good. I love the portrait. And the title. ;)
