Re: 20 to go!

I do like your post, I actually wish now for it to hit the limit ASAP.

It started as a way of showing that you can shoot pictures without the latest kit. the photos were taken because I had organised studio time and the original photographer and model failed to show. So i just got a friend round and had a practise and set out to have fun taking the shots. (of which was a success).

I thought I would share, for the simple point that the few remarks that have been constructive (i think we know what remarks were not) have been useful. Even some of the non-constructive remarks have given me insight. Yet when I post anything online, I am careful and pre-empt the responses. I mean, posting a portrait without processing applied to the skin is a little like posting about how the latest iPhone beats the latest medium format. It is bound to get some strong views.

Yet will I shoot, process and publish images without smoothing the skin again, you can bet on it. Its natural and as long as the model likes the pictures then it is fair game.

if you can imagine the picture, then do all you can to make it
