Photography Project comments

I worked on portraits in one of my photography classes and had recruited one of my fellow classmates to participate in a series of images.  He was quite the animated person that shows up in the following image:
He was fun to work with and this inspired me to work as a portrait photographer for about a year and a half.

The series that I had worked on failed.  I had come across this image today while looking for some other images.  I think I would like to revive this project and see if I can make the series work again.  I have to do a bit of research first before I plan this out again.   I had a hard time locating models last time, but I have a few guys that I work with that may be willing to help me out! There was not much to setting up the session, so the cost should be minimal and I hope that everyone donates their time. 

When I look at this image, there is so much that I see, but I am going to put this out for others to give me some ideas of what they see when they look at this, comment back to me your thoughts!

Have a great afternoon!

I am a huge fan of black and white portraits. I wish I could see a larger size of this image because it is quite lovely. I hope you continue with the portraits and post them! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll get to see this image blown up a tad because "I LIKE IT"!

Good job!

I see a fun and cheeky looking kind of chap. I LOVE the lighting in this. It's a gorgeous photo and works perfectly in b&w.

I agree with Frances about the size. It would be super to see your wonderful images a bit bigger! :D

Frances and Hey Harriet...Thank you for your feedback on my project and the image...I would love to make them larger, but fear to have them downloaded....I need to find a way to have them available without my work being lifted....By the way, this image was done in the dark room and printed on fiber paper and then bathed in selenium finish, I scanned this in the other day! Thanks Ladies!
