    Last week I moved into an artist collective in Los Angeles. I live with a few other photographers, videographers, music producers, musicians, actors, singers, painters, and illustrators (it's a very big house). Even in the last few days living in this house has made it so much easier to make friends and collaborate with others, and everyone is very supportive of each other and extremely willing to collaborate. Yesterday I was supposed to photograph someone that I don't live with, but that person cancelled at the last minute. I was pretty disappointed because I was looking forward to making some portraits today, but fortunately when I returned home my roommate Jahred (who is an actor and maybe should be a model) was happy to model for me. We walked down the sidewalk a block and a half from the house where this big flower bush grows and I took these portraits using natural light and a silver reflector.

    Canon 5D (classic), Canon 85mm f/1.8 lens set to f/4, 1/400th sec, ISO 400.

    Hmm, interesting that you have not had a comment yet.

    So my comment ... I think you cropped a bit too close in the first.
    His skin look toooo smooth in the second, I think he would look better with texture.

    I prefer the B&W shot, for the greater context that it shows.

    126 views, no comments, until you bumped the thread? What? Are people afraid to comment on your work?

    Thanks for the feedback. I agree about the crop, however to me it was a minor imperfection that was outweighed by how much I liked the expression and lighting compared to similar shots that were cropped a little better.

    Thanks Derrel. I prefer the black and white as well.

    To be honest I think it's because they're not photos of women.
