'Yussif'

‘Yussif’

My recall of my greatest satisfaction attempting portraits (like this one) is that I feel so much exciting emotion or energy flowing from the subject. But reflection and analysis urge me to turn the focus around: they may just have been days good for me. In portraiture, as in romance, I now believe so much more of the experience is coming from oneself flowing toward this person than coming from the other. At least in contrast with my earlier notions. What do you think?
