Portrait of a President

Whatever side of the fence you’re on, you can’t argue against President Obama’s smile (or Mitt Romney’s hair).

I can’t even describe how sharp this picture is at full size. I put the 24-70 aside for the last few years because it almost made things too easy and mindless, but it is an amazing performer.

Note: In all of these posts, negative political commentary against either side will be deleted. The entire Internet lies out there, waiting for your flame wars.

Camera: Nikon D3s
Lens: 24-70 f/2.8

  1. This photograph is a great reminder that politicians are people, plain and simple. Like their decisions or not, they are human, with human emotions–life, laughter, love and everything else that we all experience, including pain, shame, and loss. To attack a political stance is one thing, to attack another human being is quite another. Thank you, Ryan, for such a candid, emotional capture :)

  2. Amazing opportunity for you Ryan and an incredible gift to us all…Love this picture…Please send one to his family. :)

  3. That is my go to combo for weddings. It’s insane how sharp that lens can be even at 2.8. A little too good at times where it brings out many fine lines and wrinkles Ina brides face ! Congrats on your opportunity Ryan!

  4. You have captured President Obama’s (and Mitt’s below) innocence and childlike expressions, I love it. In the stressful and all encompassing life in world politics this is a side not easily captured.
