    Waiting for the sweet release of death so I can't photograph him anymore.

    I took this shot last month, but after editing a few photos from this shoot I ended up putting the rest of the other edits off so I could get caught up on client work. When I returned to that shoot this morning I found this gem that I never got around to editing before. It's similar to a shot that I posted from this set a while ago, but this particular shot has an emotion to it that feel was missing from the other shot. Shot in natural light.
    Canon 5D MKI || Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 lens set to f/8 || 1/400th sec || ISO 800

    What a cracking shot/portrait Dan, moody in it`s own way but to me it tells a story of complete sadness plus it suits mono.

    Very good for black-and-white treatment. I like the way the flowers contain him within the frame.

    Thank you. It's hard to get a bad shot of this model.

    Thanks Derrel. Fortunately I had already made this conversion for another photograph, so it was as simple as dragging the adjustment layers over from the other image and then the usual dodging/burning and spot healing to clean some details up.

    (It's actually a line from some funny hate mail I recently received here).

    Thank you.
