This is Nathaniel

If you want to see how I made this (and how you can too!), visit my HDR Tutorial. I hope it gives you some new tricks!


Nathaniel's dream is to get closer to God and to make sure his mom is happy.


Nathaniel is currently four years old and carrying wood with his two sisters down a dusty cart-road in an unmarked Amish village somewhere between Allegheny and Tionesta, Pennsylvania. In pauses between talking to me, he looks sideways at his older sisters, who peacefully nod towards him. I tell him that he looks big and strong and then I help him carry the wood to his parents' home, where he lives with his other nine brothers and sisters.
