Great self portrait John.
Cheers Gary,portrait photography is an area I do not enjoy however I am determined to try and become able to take a reasonable portrait. I also hate having my picture taken so I guess it was a good place to start
Well captured John
Thanks Alex, its not an area of photography I’m comfortable with but feel the need to try.
great work john
Thanks Steve, I was really self concious doing it. lol
I hate mine being taken as well
Aha – so now we have a face to the name! Nice one John. Thank you for sharing your artwork with the Photomatix HDR Group!
Lol Thanks Clive.
Portraiture is not my forté John but you’ve made a good job of this. Cheers, Mal
thanks Mal, just stepping out of my comfort zone.
Excellent..This would make a great avatar I think..
Yeah I know mate, just have not had time to do it yet.
Which Minolta John?! XGM or … 700? Geez, the names have gone out of my head; it has been way too long since I picked them up! My original cameras were both Minoltas – Heart Reef was taken with the … 700? lol! Now I am going to have to go digging in the cupboard to find my old big metal camera bag!! :)) But hey, you have given me some interesting ideas… thank you John!! :))) Great shot by the way too! I have got similar photos this, when I was finishing the end of a roll, so I could get it processed! I will have to see if I can find them! You might get a good laugh! :)))
Its actually the Dynax 8000i Vicky. I used to shoot with Pentax MX bodies and 2 big metal cases full of prime lenses, everything from 17mm to 1000mm mirror! Sheesh the kit I sold I could sob now!
