Two O’clock Highlight
I didn’t ask my subject how long it had been since his last shave, but it had certainly been days instead of hours. That explains his more than usual five o’clock shadow.
This outdoor portrait session in Orlando took place during the five o’clock hour which in winter is the time when the natural light is best.
This particular image had a very nice two o’clock highlight based on his relationship to the late afternoon sun.
