Re: Street portrait in colour

Even without the color this would be an outstanding portrait. The color kicks it over the top. This is a face to remember.

"surveillance photo"?

Yes I should put up a CCTV camera in this small village... No I actually remember sitting on the porch and this boy was standing like this on the one street in the village.

Maybe I'll try Frank's idea and crop a bit off the right side, just can't really decide about it

You are very kind, Sal. Thank you. The person in my photo reminds me the British artist Grayson Perry, whom I had a pleasure to meet last months at the opening of an exhibition of an another artist.

Re: Getting Up Close

I like this project. Not flattering, but an accurate depiction of another social niche. Nice work... hope you can continue the series.

Great series! How are you doing these without calling attention to yourself? Nobody seems to notice or care that your taking their photos... have you made yourself invisible?

Of course,

It gives the beauty of this picture. Almost 3D.

lens? aperture?

Look carefully Sal. The girl in the background is watching me with one visible eye.

Lens - 24-70mm f/2.8 on D3
Focal Length - 70.00 mm
Aperture Value - F/5.60
Subject Distance - 2.51 m
(ISO Speed Ratings - 1250, Exposure Time - 1/320 seconds)

The narrow DOF at F/5.60 and FL70mm is caused in this case by the short subject distance.
And also the lens is pretty sharp, which helps the 3D effect.
