Something a little different for me. First attempt at an adult portrait with no kids in sight!
All comments and advice on lighting, expression, pose, etc will be very gratefully received.
Lit with 2 desk lamps and some muslin.
What's to criticise? If this doesn't get a shed load of clicks, and EC and praised to death...you'll have been robbed.
click (1 of many)
got to agree with keith here -- you seem to have jumped very high in the quality stakes -- this is a fine example of portraiture at it's highest level -- this and yesterdays flower in the hands are 2 of the best pieces i have seen on this site --
keep em comin
Add my click to this brilliant portrait! Wow! Eyes, toning, detail - superb!
I'm jealous! lol I want to do more adults. Agree with everyone superb work Niamh. KLICKED. K.
Really superb portrait, must agree emphatically with Keith and Fred, this is absolutely outstanding for me!
Hola Niamh. A Real Spanish Caballero. Ol
Hi Niamh. What a super portrait! you've caught your subject perfectly.
Click from me.
Very nice portrait, click!
Great portrait! Excellent toning and lighting.
Nice!! Like that look and the tones you've used. Clixx! =)
One thing though : my eyes seemed to be playing tricks when i look left, and then i realised that its his shoulders. But i don't see any on the right, 'cos of the (lack of) lighting...so it seemed a bit off balance for me personally. Suspect the image could be improved somehow, but am no expert...
I agree it is a good portrait, but a 'tiny' bit more light on his right side, would have made it perfect for me, noe his eye seems lost in space, if you know what I mean.
This is meant as a constructive criticism. lol (*:*)
A very good portrait indeed. If you dodge his left eye a little, it will bring it out a bit more but that's so easy a fix that it's not effecting the big click you deserve.
Love the lighting good sharp eyes great shot
I like the expression on his face
excellent quality, wish I could do what you have done with the light, superb shot.
hi, thanks so much everyone.
i kind of liked the directional lighting as i thought it added a bit of drama. maybe it just looks odd. hmm.
anyway, your comments have given me something to think about - cheers!
It works for me. Great eyes.
thanks a lot steve - maybe it's a monitor thing.
A very good adult portrait, try more please
I'm looking at this on a cracked, crappy lcd laptop screen and it looks stunning.
Cant wait to see it on the proper screen.
Excellent portrait. What does Solly think of it?
Great moody shot, maybe just a tad more light on his left eye would be good. Lighting is otherwise very dramatic and works well.
thanks for your comments everyone.
Excellent portrait, well done Niamh.
A great portrait and very striking . After the well known portrait Artist ... Karsh of Ottawa. Keep this up , fantastic work .
thanks richard and mavis.
oh, joe, i forgot to tell you that solly did like it, thanks for asking, although he only posed to give me practice (i've been trying to get him to pose for me for months). i was more pleased than him, though, that's for sure.
Bet Solly was pleased with this excellent portrait - well done.
Great : ^ )
you look more masculine than i imagined
thank you kind people!
Excellent portrait Niamh.
Nice one, very well done, click
sorry clicked twice!
Excellent portriat lighting is spot on.
Clever to use the muslin, gives you a beautiful soft rich light. Nice one. Strong.
Dramatic light. I particularly like the fact that you kept light in his right eye.
Thanks for your comment on my shot. Busy busy busy is all I can say.
This is really great Niamh. Agree with paul about the lighting. very dramatic ! Like this a LOT !!!
I Told you already, I like the Guy, Niamh.
But after a week looking at him, Like to see a Woman, if you don't mind?lol
Any other Beauty will do aswell!!!
im not the person to make a good technicall comment.....ill touch the spot i know: he's waiting for the pic while trying to look relaxed..that makes it less valid
Its a beautifull shot...great contrast, hands posicion, framming....no worries..you'll do fine
(sorry about the absence..)
Lighting is spot on, the eyes are sharp... good stuff...could you make your next one female though? :o)))
EXCELLENT. Light and tones are great!
thanks all! i appreciate your comments, as always.
mornin el dinko.
It's all been said, Niamh. Excellent work! Click!

thanks so much, patricia.
hi sze. i've been very busy with work lately and am now in england recovering after a three day reunion with all my irish relatives. great fun but don't think i'll be taking any more photos for a couple of days until the hangover wears off. hope things are going good with you?
evening funkster. hope you're doing good.
Cheers, niamh for leaving me a message here. =) Nice to "cool off" and "recharge your batteries", before letting your creative juice ooze out again! lol! Things are fine with me...just received my exam results today and they were not too bad (passed everything!), so now doing my thesis before i am truly liberated! Am jetting off to provence tomorrow...really excited...hope to post some nice summer shots from the land that seldom rains (unlike here...). Will catch up with you again soon..see ya! =)
take care sze, and really well done your exam results! enjoy your hols.
Very strong character study Niamh. Like the pose with the arms crossed, very effective.
Thanks for the comments on my shots, really appreciate them from you, you are very talented, ta!
thanks for all your comments guys. they're much appreciated.
A nice first try, although perhaps a tad sharper would be more in keeping with a male portrait. Nice treatment though and a nice image, I like it. Good work.
title made me laugh. very good portrait.
