Re: These Feet were made for Dancing

Shine, I am having a bit of trouble with this. Artistically it does have a lot to contemplate on and I really enjoy, as Minnie mentioned, trying to "figure it out".

Re: Portrait Inspirations

Thought I'd share with everyone my Portrait Inspirations. [...] As far as direct living influencers and inspirations, Ernst is right at the top for me. Another portrait photographer I have long admired and whose work inspires me almost as much is that of Yousuf Karsh. [...] What strikes me in this ...

I would love to live in Port Angeles just for the opportunity to study under you, Ernst. If I could attain one tenth of your ability I would consider myself lucky. I doubt anyone can challenge you on your status as a Master Portraitist. Another masterfully executed portrait. And that window light......
