Well - you do, don't you?

Scarlet is a very lovely lady, and while her eyes aren't the centre of attention in many of her pictures, they are, in the end, the most captivating thing about her appearance.

And (in case anyone is wondering) I know it's grainy (or "noisy") - but I prefer to use my camera off a tripod, and am very willing to swap technical perfection for the spontaneity of poses and expressions that this allows me. I'd rather get the shot than have a technically perfect near miss.

They are indeed lovely eyes.
The rest of her looks pretty good to though.

I must admit that I never use a tripod for portraits for exactly the same reasons.
Rule No2 of the studio .......... it must be fun for all involved.

...."Look into my eyes, not around them"...

Nice work John, and I agree wholeheartly about "using the camera off tripod and Swapping Technical Perfection for Spontaneity of Poses and Expressions" or S.T.P.S.P.E for shortSmileSmile

I did, Trevor.

So I got the shot.

While I enormously admire the work of people like Ansel Adams, John Blakemore, Barry Thornton and the Westons, I also love the sort of thing that David Bailey and Robert Farber have done with fast film.

I can do tripods and fine grain. I occaisonally choose to. But often, this sort of work is what produces the results...
