I don’t think a person can look at this photo and not feel some sort of impact. And then start to wonder what is going on, before writing the story themselves.
What is happening? What is he thinking? Why did he do it?
This is another example of what can happen when you get the right team of people together, working on the same wavelength. Cody Woldt did an utterly fantastic job of expressing the emotion I demanded of him for the shot. And trust me, it wasn’t easy. I wasn’t accepting any compromises on what I wanted here.
And we got just that. I love this photo! The emotion in it takes it over the top.
