Informal Portraits, Reno

Reno Girl on a Stoop

Reno Girl on a Stoop

On Independence Day weekend Reno hosts the All-American Barbecue Festival and the Firecracker 500 off road race.  This set contains informal portraits, candids and performers.  The high plains of Northern Nevada are special with lots of sunshine, moderate afternoon high temperatures, cool evenings and low humidity.  It was beautiful in the afternoons when the sun slipped behind the Silver Legacy and Eldorado buildings.

  1. My favorite is Reno girl on a stoop. I like her smile and the way the jeans look in B&W.

    • Thank you Nia, that is why it is the featured image.

      • It’s interesting to compare. I definitely agree with which one really pops. She’s also so natural, which is appealing, and the B&W enhances that effect.

        • I was walking down the street and asked her to sit for me. Humans of Reno I guess. If I were younger and had a compelling story like “I moved to NY to take 10,000 pictures” I would be famous too.

  5. The woman in shorts looks more like she should be at Sturgis . . . or maybe a WalMart Shopper. Great eye for the ladies – as everyone says – the girl on the stoop wins.

    • Probably Sturgis. I have some pics from the Lone Star Rally. Use the Texas menu button in the header, and scroll back to November.
