    And what I think is by far the best, possibly one of the best photos I've ever made...

    Great job!!! The last shot is an excellent moment. Matt (Dowdey) spoke of going to the dark side by switching to digital exposures. For me the dark side is going pro. With any kind of luck you will not find out what I mean. Like all professions there are pluses and minuses.

    That being said; you must be proud. Did you quit your other job (teacher?) are you working for a studio, or doing the photography alone? We can not wait to hear the details

    You are right to be proud of that last one: it just looks like perfection. The unique angle, the catchlights, the lovely texture - this portrait is the shizzit, John. :thumbsup: I hope you charged a lot! :wink:

    Expect referrals from that shoot, babe. If that's what you're after then I am thrilled for you! :cheer:

    Nice job! Honestly, though...I don't know if I like the last or the first better. You captured a nice moment in the first one!

    These are great John! I love working with Seniors, they are a lot of fun and somehow they go from looking young to pretty adult when you look at the shots afterwards. I love that last shot, his eyes really stand out.
