Here's another attempt at a 'Dragan' technique.

This is my friend Simon Stacey, also known as BGB, who very kindly went without a shave and modelled for me.

Tried a more subtle approach this time.

All advice welcome..

like the effect very much, ask him not to shave for a few months and you could get a long beard shot as well !!! Very nice portrait. Sue

Good portrait shot.
My thought is that a small crop of the left to off set the face a little to one side may give it more impact.

I still like it a lot. And I've found some tutorials, so I might have to try it. What I need now is a wrinkly subject...

This is really good, this more subtle approach lends a sort of ultra-realism to the image. It's complimented by a great, relaxed pose and good lighting.

If I'm going to make one small criticism, I think the eyes look a little milky compare to everything else, and could maybe do with the slightest increase in contrast. Very small point, though.

Clicked here earlier, looks like the site problems meant it didn't register.
Love the shot, sensitively handled, more subtle than Dragan in my opinion. BGB should be happy.
