This photo is part of an ongoing personal project, The Farmers Series, capturing fine-art portraits of farmers and ranchers around the country.
While in Spearfish, South Dakota, I connected with a local farming family that included Nicole and Macie. I like the images of the farmers to have a grounded feel, one that speaks to their way of being. I used a Canon Speedlite on the left of frame and the 1DX Mark II camera with a 50mm f/1.4 lens.
The results are a photo that has a timeless feel, yet also contemporary. And in truth, farmers themselves bridge both worlds.
