but all technique is nothing without "the eye" and "the brain" of a real "obsessed" photographer.
go on, Sam, go on...
how did Mr.Mansbridge judge your work?
i think that's what counts.
(my adoration is warranted ;-))
OF COURSE you was nervous!
you MUST be nervous to give your Best.
minimize the routine!
yesterdays post seems to be the cream of the crop.

That's just a little bit more involved than me! For me, it is pretty much available light.
He is a very important figure in Canada...!
No he isn't, he just talks on TV.

P.M. never should be portrayed without showing one of these attractive handsome hands.
And you did it in a wonderful casual way, Sam.
(this is no sexist comment, but a plain compliment for both, the model and the photographer! :-))
Portraying is one of the most challenging and exciting parts in photography. And this photo is a rather good example of the category.
I came back several times to look and think before i formed this opinion.
good pictures suck!
I had the opportunity to assist on a shoot for Peter Mansbridge a few years ago. Two set ups, both only about 15 mins each! Fast paced work, he was great to work with, and made fun of George Strombo by doing "George Poses" (none of which made it to the final cut) I love how you lit this portrait, and was surprised to see you used small camera flashes, no assistant and no profotos! Budget, and easier to work with on your own, and the end result is just as impressive.
I look forward to seeing more of your portrait work.
