    Hi, gang:

    Over the past 2 1/2 years I've been working on "Faces On The Street," a series of street portraits at 5th & Main in downtown Los Angeles. Recently I teamed with my friend, Danny Combs, a pro guitarist and composer who wrote and performed original music -- Waiting For Paradise -- for a 5 minute slideshow we've put on YouTube. Check it out and please comment -- thanks.

    Tech details: The YouTube quality is pretty bad, but the original photos are all very detailed. I made them with my Pentax 6x7 with 135 macro lens on Ilford Delta Pro 400 film, pushed to 650 in Kodak xTol, diluted 1:1. I scan my negatives on an Epson V-750 Pro and then make enhancements in PhotoShop. I made the slide show with Pro Show Gold, which a couple of people recommended on this forum. Thanks for looking.

    You seem to lean for a tight crop and high contrast. Normally, neither is my cup of joe, but they are nice nonetheless.
