    A portrait I took at a local beauty salon in downtown Portland (Gilded Fox). Every couple of months they have a few models come into the salon and they do them up, and I then photograph them. This guy wasn't one of those models. The salon actually focuses on curly hair, this guy just happened to be the boyfriend of one of the stylists, and while he wasn't one of the hired models, he is an agency signed model and was more than willing to let me take his portrait.

    Shot in natural light (a window on an overcast day), with a silver reflector for a little fill.

    What a lucky guy, right place, right time. He got shot by Dan. I suspect you could even make ME look good! :clap:

    Great look as always. Do you normally run your shutter speed that fast?

    Thank you. I try to keep it fairly fast to cancel out any camera shake or movement so I can get a sharp focus.

    I thought about you when we passed through Portland back in October; unfortunately we were under time pressure (daughter and grandkids wanted us in Seattle ASAP for some reason).
