Surely, there are others doing portraits...

Come on guys and gals, trying to start a monthly tradition here.

I must admit that even though I make tons of portraits I don't want to undermine the main (?) reason for subscribing APUG...

I am torn, as I'd love to have a more specific way of looking at images in the galleries (like this one), where we could have an ongoing discussion on images within a theme....

But as long as that is not the case....

Got a few coming up. Just haven't processed the film yet. :)

Love the squirrel, mrred!

Here's a portrait shot in March, from a couple of weeks ago. My friend Aly wanted some portraits, and who am I to decline such a noble wish? :)

Finally starting to jive with the Canon EOS-3 camera. Here with the 85mm f/1.8 lens, at f/4. This is just a neg scan. Haven't had time to print.
Ilford HP5+ in D76 1+1. Fairly straight scan, adjusting tones in Photoshop CC, spotting, adding a slight warm tone, and a little bit of edge burning is all I did to it.
I forgot my reflector, but think it came out OK.

Very nice. It is nice to see lighting done well.

Thanks Mark. It was just a fun experiment. I'm planning on doing a series of portraits of my friends with this kinda setup and hoping to print them in a book.

I agree it's a nice portrait. Love how white those whites are. Only thing distracting is how light the hand is. Hands are so expressive, and it makes me wish for more detail in that area.

Thomas,

You're totally right. Thanks for the great catch! It was my first time shooting with the Rolleiflex so I was more excited about the camera than I was about the actual photo being taken. Hopefully I'll be able to correct that going forward :)
