krakker's "Bustling or empty." I love pinholes. They are always so mysterious!
Ozphoto's portrait of SAPD's officer. Wow! Great use of lights! You've put a lot of effort into setting up this shot and I think you nailed it perfectly. I am very impressed.
Thanks Anikin. I had an idea of how I wanted to shoot Drew, and thankfully he was just as relaxed in front of the camera as he is in real life. I knew I had the shot in the second roll, but ran a third just to be sure, and it was all completed in about 25 minutes.

I'm not a "portrait" photographer, per se - I actually find it quite difficult, but give me someone who relaxed and happy to let me run with an idea, and 9/10, I can put onto film, what I envisaged before they arrive for the shot. Thankfully, this was one of those shoots where the whole idea and subject came together perfectly.
