Portrait of Sophia, Itchenor.

Portrait photography by Tobias Key

Sophia. Shot at Itchenor

I made this portrait down near Itchenor harbour, on a little path that runs down to West Wittering. I guess it’s unusual to be shooting  only a few yards from the sea and not to make a ‘beach’ photo, but I loved the way Sophia’s dress matched with the foliage in the background, so this was the shot I picked. It was late afternoon so the light was great, and it was reasonably bright which makes focussing and shooting with a view camera much easier. This is one of my favourite images because it feels almost like a painting, a combination of the light, the film stock and the stop I used, seemed to work together brilliantly.
