I recently met Oliver, an actor. Took a couple of candid snaps of him on the way home last night. He has a wonderfully expressive face and a deep, warm voice and I think we'll be hearing quite a lot of it in the future

I like his style. Self-confident but good-humoured. I think I'd like a bit more space on the right for him to smile into but it's not critical here.

A slight problem with dof Simon, his portrait is soft yet his jacket sharp. Animated relaxation.

Not too sure, Ron. On blow up I can count his pours and beard etc. There is a little motion blur in the "West Indian Woodbine". what ever, I'd sooner have slight faults rather than spoil the snap with flashlight or phoney shop. Thanks, Si.

Love the angle of the head, a guy with real confidence you've captured something of his personality! Just a little soft in places Si

Dear all, thanks for all of your comments, I'm particularly grateful for the criticisms, you folk are really pushing me. In defense I should say that this isn't a studio portrait, it's a snap I took in the back yard of my local at 20;33hrs last night in poor light. Fairly soon some of my images will be appearing on big walls so I use max iso 200 where ever possible. This guy works with the RSC and it may well be that they want this image for a poster, in which case I would sooner have a little softness here and there against poorer overall quality which would have been the result of iso 800/f11. Photography involves a lot of compromise, you make a decision and have to stand by it, but as advised in my old school reports I will "try harder". Thanks again, Si.

At 55mm youre depth should have been fine, - depending on how far away you were. The problem seems to me that you camera has focused on the zipper on the jacket. This can happen if you allow the camera to use multiple focus points. For most situations, and in particulr portraits, snaps or casual shots, you need to select ONE focus point (check the manual, its really easy), place it on his eye, and off you go. He should NOT be moving either.


Im sure you could sharpen his head only in this to improve the appearance of the image overall.



Regards


Willie
