    I'm not really a portrait shooter, but I recently went to a record signing with my favourite musician, Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree, at a record store here in London. Something of a candid snap. It isn't exactly a Pulitzer, but there's something about the out-of-focus head in the foreground and the candid nature that makes it appeal to me. Any crits appreciated:

    i like the idea of the out of focus head too. the only problem is that i didn't know it was a head and puzzled over it till i read your piece. i think if it was a wider shot you could get the effect of him looking at some anonymous fan, but that's lost a bit cause of the extreme closeup of the head. i do like the look he has, intent and interested, but not at the camera, close to the camera but not right at it. cool timing.

    Haha, thanks for saying. I guess that this is one of those shots where the photographer understands, but the viewer doesn't really have the same connection to it.
