Went to get breakfast with this dude and subsequently forced him into a mini portrait shoot. Shot mid-day in north park, san diego on a bridge with an obnoxiously unwieldy lighting set up.

Adam! it just seems a LITTLE soft. That's nitpicking though. My fav portrait of Adam I think

gracias my dude. much appreciated. is it just me or does uploading pictures here seem to make them a wee bit softer?

Great portrait!!! I'm assuming you used an ND filter.

thanks so much! and yes. i use a variable nd and if memory serves it was cranked pretty much to the darkest setting for this one. lots of sun to kill!
