The important person I took portraits of is Coach Cordova. He is important to the community because he coaches our football team and teaches some of our physical education classes. Coach Cordova also helps student whenever he can. He is always in the hallways, with a smile on his face and making jokes.
In the portraits I took, I tried to capture him in the weight room, where he teaches his classes and trains his football team. In the background are the weights, and on his shirt is the year he lead is team to the state championship. I chose a very casual pose for Cordova because he is a very laid back person and is always in a good mood. I kept the depth of field very shallow to blur out the mirror that was behind him. Because of the light reflecting from the yellow and red walls, I had to adjust the color levels in photoshop to get the even tone of the picture.
