    This is the first time I've taken headshots for someone I'm not related to. :D He's a co-worker, and I didn't charge him. I'm still building up a "portfolio."

    I'd like any input that anybody has. I think the best one is the last one(color and grey), but I'd love to hear what anybody else has to say. Any input would be most helpful! :D :D :D

    Other than white balance, contrast and some sharpening, these are un-retouched.

    I really like two and three for both the higher contrast and general pose.

    I agree. Those are my favorites, also.
    Very nicely done!

    number three for me, it has the best pose IMO, and the lighting and tones are nice and even.

    Nice series. If I were to pick favorites, it would be #4 and 6.

    I really like #2 - #4(Black and White) and #6(Black and White)

    I like #1 alot but am distracted by the white reflection? behind him. Other then that, it is great too.

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Seeing which ones other people liked made me go back and take another look at the shots.

    The guy got back to me last night, and he loved #4 in B/W and #6 in B/W. I'm letting him do most of the touch-ups on his own stuff. Normally I'd do my own, but the guy is amazing in photoshop, and he's a little more concerned about age lines than I would be. :p

    I really like #3 and 5. I think 5 seems a bit edgier than the others and I like that. But, really, I think all of them are pretty great!
