    I'd like to get more into people photography, but just don't seem to know that many people! :?

    Anyway, here is one my attempts with a friend of mine from our soccer team. Don't know if the site I'm linking from accepts hot linking, so if this doesn't work I'll fix it from home later. :D

    that is a neat perspective. The colors are nice and warm and also appear soft making the skin and its tones look very realistic.

    I am not quite sure what to make of the angle of the eyes. The picture says something but I am not sure what that is yet. If I figure it out I will let you know.

    Either way I am drawn to the eyes... nice shot I really like it.

    Hmm, actually I've got about a hundred shots from that sitting, but still haven't gotten many of them through post work (I had a camera that wasn't very cooperative and not enough light).

    Here's one more that came out okay. Interesting lighting at least. I should have PSed out the veins in the eyes though. :lol:

    I would say keep attempting. You are definetly on to something. I have always had a hard time with photgraphing portraits and people in general. The lighting is beautifully soft and your subject seems relaxed. Revealing a tender moment.
