Re: Selfie studio portrait

Every so often I play around with portraiture. While not my 'thing' I feel I do need to understand the process in order to speak intelligently in the subject. :-D Here is a selfie from one of my self-indulgent sessions. Obviously it is much more difficult to be both photographer AND subject, but cr...

Re: 'Soul Recipe'

Absolutely mesmerizing, Dave! I am so interested in knowing this person - the lifestyle or religion that is the story behind the headdress. My only wish is that the eyes were a little brighter than the area on the shoulder. I agree with Linda, plus I feel the vignette is a tad overmuch. I love the ...

Re: 'Grandpa Elliott'

While in New Orleans 2016, I came across Grandpa Elliott on the streets. He was on the corner of which streets I don't remember. I stopped and had a brief conversation in which he stressed for me to look up 'Stand by Me'. I have done so and discovered quite a bit about Grandpa Elliott. For those in...

Re: 'Leader of the Pack (Revised)

HOLY MOLY!!! there is a circle of blur bounded by the one bright stray hair (that you stole from the other side perhaps).

Re: 'Stranger in Town'

Not knowing where to post this and some of my other images, because it would also fit in the Portraits & Head Shots, or Street & Photojournalism but decided to post here. This was taken at Wright Patterson AFB back in April 2017 for the 75th Anniversary of the Jimmy Doolittle Tokyo Raid. Wh...

Re: 'Stranger in Town'

Great impact with your pp, Dave. You have created a signature, creative look to be very proud of. I forgot to form my own opinion before reading the others, lol. I'm not sure the eyes are a problem for me, though. Maybe falls under the "unexpected" category, which can generate interest an...
