    Rak is my best friend's roommate's boyfriend, and today while I was hanging out with my best friend I had a few seconds to get a portrait of him. I had him hold a small silver reflector and stand next to a fairly large window in the apartment living room. Normally I wouldn't have the aperture set so wide (f/2) for a headshot like this, but it was getting dark and I already had my ISO set to 800 on my old 5D MKI, and to be honest I don't have to spend as much time retouching the face when theres less in focus. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Looks fantastic on my iPhone's (Retina?) display. DOF placement looks pretty good.

    Love it. Might be a knockout in monochrome too... Actually, it is

    Thank you! I’ll have to make a conversion and see how it looks. I loved the color version so much that I didn’t think to see how it would look in black and white.

    Another incredible headshot! I agree this would look great in BW, but it also looks great in color.

    I am glad you shot this at such a shallow DOF, it gives it very "Intense" eye contact! Love it!!! :)
