Environmental portraits

Environmental portraits are a challenge in many ways. Most important is putting the subject at ease and eliciting a comfortable expression. Background selection of course is paramount, to show their natural surroundings.  Lighting is crucial to give shape and dimension. Posing and props should add to the story of a portrait. Balancing these details and timing of multiple subjects in multiple cities in one day, takes planning, coordination, improvisation and patience....... the stuff photogs thrive on for a shoot to come together successfully.

Polygram Profusion

The color attracted me; but the shapes make the shot. Polygons abound, how many do you count? There's also the sphere, wedge, circle, and elbow.
Hint: there's 22 yellow polygons alone.
