    A friend of mine had a show open last week. The local paper did a profile on him and he needed a picture to submit. It was rather last-minute, but this is what I came up with. I was planning to use window light, but he wanted to be near the wall with some of his images behind him. We used a floor lamp on one side, which is why the shadows are a bit harsh. Luckily I brought my reflector.

    Ah well. I do like it, and it was cool to get it in the paper, regardless.

    It's a nice photo Mark. I don't mind the shadows at all.

    Shadows? You give your average paper-reader too much credit ;)

    It's a great shot and will work nicely for his profile.

    Great shot. I like his expression and the fact that you can see his camera and his work.

    Erm... neither. ;)
    I've had two pieces go into a local photo book, and [ame=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1932461019/qid=1060529009/sr=1-10/ref=sr_1_10/102-2333270-9540144?v=glance&s=books]this book cover[/ame], but photography isn't a steady income stream for me yet.


    Thanks for the comments, everyone! :D
