RCC Photo Student for Mayor

For one of my self-promos, I decided to photograph a political campaign-style portrait. First year student, Lewis Perkins agreed to pose for me (as the candidate) and we shot outside the Asheboro City Hall. I underexposed the background to make him stand out and shot from a low angle to give him a sense of power.
