Default Gentleman Poppenhouse

I know one person on here that knows this guy. A great Photographer and a great Instructor on the subject. The best one that I have ever met. Not only that, he is a great person too. Name? Jerry Poppenhouse. He is way better than people know...



Image is slightly artisitic, on purpose (because I liked it this way). All done in Lightroom, for those that cared.

I love this! He reminds me of so many men I know around here! Nice processing too. Is he in the middle of instruction? Do you have any more? I'd love to see some.

Mr. Pickles, that is one of the finest shots to appear here in a long time. And given the considerable level of talent that is saying a lot.

I think it is a fantastic portrait. At first I was going to suggest that it was a little oversharpened, but then, I kept thinking that maybe it was effect...learning from previous threads, I read the info below the picture.

I would think this portrait would make a nice gift.

I think it's a great shot and like the processing. It's engaging even though he's not looking at camera.

Jerry is an awesome dude. He was the corporate cinematographer and photographer for Phillips Petroleum in Bartlesville, OK for many years. Then he taught photography at Oklahoma State (where I work) for another stretch. His students love him to death. "Poppy" retired a few years ago, but he still teaches and does these workshops at Woolaroc twice a year. If you are anywhere near Oklahoma, they are worth attending. Plus you get to see buffalo.

Mr. Pickles, you did a good job here. You ought to email that one to him.

Bob
