    I suppose someone has to try and follow phrasikleia, yet another great shot ^^^

    Not sure if I have posted this before or not, so just in case to tide me over until I get chance to go out and about

    Herdwicks are supposed to have come over with the Vikings, more than 1,000 years ago. They're the hardiest of hill sheep, and can survive the harshest winters...

    Beautiful pic (but you have a problem with dust-spots)...

    I know it's very cliché to make picture of your keyboard.. but I really like this one to be completely honest.

    No editing, shot with no light besides the backlit keyboard and the brightness of my macbook ;-)

    Love the color and lines in this one. I have a question or two for you, P. When you are shooting these type of photos with apertures like f/16 or 22 to get a wider DOF, do you use a DOF app to get the hyperfocal distance or do you just focus about 1/3 of the way into the scene? Secondly, since I have a 5D Mark III as well, do you center AF focus/recompose, move your focal point in the in viewfinder AF area array or manually focus? Just curious, and continuing to try to learn and improve. Thanks.

    This is one of my best friends (of about 21 years) came over to my studio and acted as my model as I got familiar with the lighting gear. We then ran through a bunch of various poses pulled from some blogs.

    It'll be fun using this space! :D

    La Cienega (1960d)

    So this shot may not seem that interesting, but this view is my favourite part of La Cienega, I used to see this every morning as I went to 90210, I'll miss it.

    (The 1960d project is a Prontor 125 rangefinder lens modified to fit my Canon 60d)

    1/640
    ƒ2.8

    It feels like he is to far turned away from the camera. I always feel if the bridge of the nose if cutting across the eye then it is too far so I either bring it more towards the camera or push it further away for more of a profile shot!

    Nice to see some portrait shots though!

    Here's mine, as always, comments appreciated!

    Great shot, very sharp. Amazing what a T/S lens (and a photog who knows how to operate them of course ) can do to correct lines and perspective. I have to try one some day.

    Testing out a cheap Fujian 35mm f/1.7. It has a light leak, I think, but it adds the character!

    It needs a figure in there, IMO... maybe a Lumberman...

    Out on the lake today. Didn't get much... except hypothermia...

    Thanks, it's nice to get some feedback!

    I've recently signed up for a monthly rent in a studio space shared with about 12 other photographers with the intent of using the space to shoot portraits and learn how to do it well. Any feedback I get is very much welcome. You'll be seeing more portraits from me soon enough! ;)

    Hmmm, I think you are right. And you know what? I had the radio triggers with me to pull that off too...

    Maybe next time! :D
