Smiling Paul

More portraiture practice with Paul Barr, slightly less impromptu than those portraits we did three weeks ago, but with similar results. These are from the same day last week that he shot me.

In the shots of me that Paul took, some folks liked the last shot but not the first, which is perhaps a little odd because it's the same photo with a different crop. Maybe it's because the tighter crop gets rid of the silly turtleneck. Anyway, here's a tighter crop of the first shot above, but also with a few processing differences...

I don't feel that I really progressed much from the previous time. We're practicing more tomorrow, with Stéphane Barbery.


Comments so far....

Gregarious has a nice look. Very contemporary styling with the crop and the processing. Not sure how much post you did but he looks very handsome, and the photo looks honest yet flattering. That’s not often an easy combination.
