A photog class project and the task was making a high key b/w portrait. So amazingly difficult for me. A new found appreciation for portraiture work in natural light and pp editing…Schew….

Meet Jake, he’s two, and very use to a camera in his face, or rather in front of his father’s face…lol

    I reckon you’ve done a damned good job at it! Awesome expression and the catch light is fantastic.

    Very nicely done mate.
  • Yah, nice to hear. I, embarrassingly, have put tons of time into this one. I mean…tons! Learning as I go…. Cheers mate, and thanks for your support. :)

    I agree with Luke and he probably said it better than I! What he didnt say is how darn cute your child is! Beautiful capture and lighting Joe! Awesome tones too!

  • Thanks Tina, that’s so nice to hear, of course. Big grin I have now. :)

    This is one to treasure for many generations! Brilliant capture by dad and wonderful model. Sandy

  • Thank you, Sandy! Yes, indeed sentimental for me. Hard to be objective artistically when it’s your own kid…lol Thank you for the kind words. :)
