Brake lamp lighting is one of the most commonly used light fixtures used. The easiest way to get this relief is to stand on the dark side of the model.

Paco

One of the veteran actors from the local theater community had always been in my head as a great subject for a dramatic portrait shoot. Last week I finally asked him to come over and couldn't have been happier with the results.

He started out very uncomfortable and insecure, but we kept talking until the light and camera disappeared and...

The Secret life of daydreams

The Secret life of daydreams

I have a strange feeling with regard to you. As if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly knotted to a similar string in you. And if you were to leave I'm afraid that cord of communion would snap. And I have a notion that I'd take to bleeding inwardly. As for you, you'd forget me.

Moody Male Portrait - CC & critique welcome

I'm a photo hobbyist who has been increasingly active that past year trying to build my skills and find my niche. At present, I just love to shoot everything, however, I'm drawn to people and portraits at the present. Maybe it's the cold winter weather ;)

In any case, this was my first portrait attempt (it's actually a "selfie" so to...

Despair

Hi everyone! New to the group here.

I shot this as part of a series I'm doing. This was a crazy fun shoot and the model was just awesome. There's no photoshop here, just a few adjustments and touch ups in Lr. Everything was shot light painting with a fibre optic brush on long exposures :)

We spent about 2 hours doing the makeup...

Dalit Woman

Shot this with an Apurture Mini 20 & Gold reflector on the Gh5.

I was in a remote part of India shooting a documentary about the Devadasi temple maidens. While I was out there I encountered this woman.

Her family had died a few years before the encounter, she is part of a caste that is considered poor or untouchable. They were...
