    These were some shots from last night in my class....of course I had to be different....everyone else's were vvery nice normal portraits and these.....hmmmm...were mine......The interesting part was for me even though I struggled with my settings because people would add addition flash for what I had metered (Not making excuses just an explaination) These models prefered mine over others perfectly exposed shots....go figure.........I know I'm weird....but I said I would share even though I'm kinda embarrassed to do so :blushing:

    Well I like em! Basically because they are different. #2 is a little dark for me. I don't mind the red tint though ;)

    No need to be embarrassed...thinking outside of the box is definitely a good trait.

    Could you borrow Rob's Tom from Rob for your session? ;) It almost looks like it.
    I like the first and last best of the series.
    What did you do to make the third look kind of painted?

    Photography is a very subjective art. The comments by woodsac and Big Mike said it best...

    Photo #4 is my personal fave.

    I think it is possible to make portraits "different" and still have faces in focus and good contrast lighting and interesting compositions. expression is also important for a portrait.

    however, art is subjective and it's great that the models liked your shots. what did your teacher think?
