Hi Manuel,
We communicated a little before through email a short time. This is one of the best photos I've ever seen! How do you get it to look so soft like that, can I ask you?

You must have known when you clicked the shutter that what you were seeing was one of those magic moments we all hope for. I just spent some time going through your portolios. Two things strike me: one is your gift for using light as part of the story. The other is the feeling that you have made real contact with these people. They are revealing themselves to you, so that you are not just 'taking a picture', but there is a collaboration of mutual interest. Very inspirational Manuel! Congratulations! #5200609
