On a National Geographic assignment, I photographed this Sadhu (Holy Man) on the grounds of Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Photographing people is something I love about photography. I think we can share who we are through the camera. I was photographing at the Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu, Nepal when I saw this incredible painted and adorned Sadhu (Holy Man) walking the grounds near the cremation sites.  I asked him if I could photograph him, he was fine with that. I used an extremely fast short lens (a 90mm) with the intent of the lens being at f1.2, its widest aperture. This provides an extremely shallow depth of field, the zone of sharpness at this distance was just a couple of inches. The benefit of a super-fast lens like this, its design which allows a beautiful “bokeh” or out of focus nature. When we look at photographs, one of the first things we look for are eyes and sharpness. So, a sharp focus on this gentleman’s eyes was critical.  A direct gaze into the lens enhances a direct connection with the viewer.
