Edgar – Uganda

“Edgar by the fire, at home”

Young Edgar had just lit the fire in this small hut in rural Uganda. I walked into the dark space and saw the almost biblical light coming through the window with the smoke rising. It was incredibly atmospheric, if a little hot! The illumination of his face and the stool to the right of the frame seem to hit the right note and really help lift the image. The first image I shot, the flames weren’t as strong nor vibrant, but on the second shutter click they raised up and helped to make the picture. I shot just two frames, using a D800 and 35mm f2 (my standard travel lens)
