I am a huge fan of yours and your portrait work John. This is so amazing :)
Thank you Caroline, I think it is a good ‘classic’ example, even if I say so myself!

Goog portraits, good light
Thank you kindly Mauricia. Some time ago I wrote an article about lighting portraits, perhaps you may find it informative and helpful. :-))
John thanks for you article link, I was thinking of painting my room ( a smal room I use as a studio, trying to make a good photo) white, and after reading it, i understood that it would be best to paint it black. Also, I’l like to try to obtain the perfect cristal as you spoke in the article, thanks for the idea and all this support.
I prefer black because it is generally easier to add light using reflectors than it is to take it away. Don’t just paint with light, learn to paint with shadows too. This is easier when they are already there to start with! :-))
This is a beautiful portrait!! :)
