[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
this is Eric, one of my male models....
one of he things i like to do most is trying to photograph something of someones personallity.
i think that Eric has something really boyisch eventhough he is a grown man...
i hope i did capture that.
note: he hates football, but it suits him doesn't it?

i have used strong contrasts, as usual.
i have this picture in colour, but i think its so much stronger in b/w

hi eva i like this portrait very much and i like the ball too, the only thing desturbing i think is the strong contrast on the ball, which takes away attention to the portrait, a bit strange the crop on the hair as well, either crop lower or not crop the hair, just my personal thoughts.
i still think it is a great shot

Very nice!! Great detail. Very nice lighting. And yes, I do like the football/soccerball included. TFS

Like I wrote on Footo.nl: I can pack my bags :-(

It`s a great B&W... the contrast it`s perfect!


Hi Eva, I like your b/w work, you do very well. And I agree with you, I bet this one is perfect in b/w compared to the coloured one.
Here we have the stron contrast of light and shadow but we still see the boy's face in the shadow.
And yes the ball suits him well.
Great portrait with his smile and look towards the side.

Very sharp.
Great work! Yan :)

ps: Many thx for the great review on "Morning Mist on Pink Lake". I am very pleased that you like it.
