Default Pete

Tonight at our Photo Guild meeting we had another session on shooting portraits. We had two of our members model. Here is Pete. Teresa shows Pete some of her shots and our instructor, Richard, checks his light meter in the last image. Cheers, Bill P.

Bill, those are nice! My favorite of Pete is the last one. I also like the 3rd one a lot, even with him barely peeking over his glasses. Well done! You make me want to join a photo club.

What do you thing that shadow is from on #1? It did catch my eye for a few seconds...

That last one is a great documentary photo, lol. And that's the meter I have too.

Sis, the shadow on the first image is from the people standing around. We had turned on the hot lights we were going to use, but had not really started. I shot throught the members standing around to get that shot. Pete was a fantastic model as was Abby.

Yes, photo clubs are great! Our little club is a couple of years old and we learn from each other and have lots of fun together. Cheers, Bill P.

Bill, the one of Pete with his hand to mouth really connects with me because you've captured him at a less self conscious moment - a 'real emotion' if you like.

Fran, I don't really know the proper technique for a b&w conversion. However, at your suggestion, I have turned the image you like into a b&w. If you would like to edit using your technique, I would welcome it and suggestions. Cheers, Bill P.
