Pre Bar Mitzvah Portraits – Benji – A Fencing Portrait



Benji loves fencing. So together with his mom they agreed we would do a portrait of him dressed for fencing as a possible sign in board for his upcoming Bar Mitzvah. I know, he does not look like he will be 13! We went to the brand new southern extension of Riverside Park in NYC. It’s right on the Husdon River, under the West Side Highway. The Sun kept going in and out as Benji went through his “moves,” ¬†giving me so much variety. When I shoot for sign in boards I deliberately look to leave lots of negative space for everyone to sign.
