    .... C&C welcome! I know some of the blk/whites are not callobrated correctly -- for some reason or another, I'm having problems converting some of the color photos. However, any feedback on the composition or otherwise would be greatly appreciated. I'm pretty happy with a couple of these but had a hard time relating to the artist (I guess that's all part of the job though... be nice, I'm still learning:blushing: ).

    These photos were taken for PR purposes for a local rap artist.

    Good stuff Taralyn! They will serve their purpose perfectly.
    The only shot I don't care for is #3. I think it's the combination of his eyes and the pose. It makes him look like maybe he's 'on something' and just kind of slouched up against a wall.
    I especially like the first and last :thumbup:

    The first one is amazing. id recomend shooting him in color. the brick really compliments his complexion.the black and white are a little flat so if you have color versions of them id love to see them. i also see quite a bit of noise. is that just the uploaded version or is the noise in the orginal as well?

    Love the DOF and perspective on the first one, and I'll agree with woodsac on the third one. This is a great series!

    I'll agree with everything above... they're all very well done but #3 just doesn't have that "angry" or "badass" look to it. Excellent series...

    Thank you everyone - in hindsight, I'd have to agree that #3 definitely has a certain "funny something" type of look to it! hah!

    Onyx: I have color version and will re-post those soon. I actually liked all the pictures better in color but was trying to earn some "street/grit" points by transfering them to blk/whte.

    Elsaspet: Thank you so much! I really admire your portrait/people work so that means a lot to me.

    Other than what's been said...(not all have loaded yet, so I may add on later)...the only thing I'm noticing is the reflection in his glasses in 4...I believe that's you I see. :) That's kinda distracting.

    wow, that first photo is outstanding. great composition, lighting and pose. I love it. The others aren't as strong. Very good series though. He should be happy with these.
