Bad Day

By ade_mcfade      
All you potential wedding photographers take note - if you use a very wide lens for your portraits, they may end up looking like this!

Which is fine if you're having a laugh with afew bottles of the res stuff, but no good for the bride's big day!

this is chris, knelt down looking up into my 17-40, so the distortion is marked to get this effect. His body just disappeared and left the head, so I blackened everything around him to give it that "just decapitated" look - ties it into yesterday's shot.

For some strange reason, I really like this one... eyes sitting on the bottom 1/3 of the shot???? whatever next?

It has just taken me 10bloody minutes of research and googling to find out what a"side"lens is. Your spelling and typing are equally as bad as mine. Having said that i think this is a great porrait and i admire you for just doing something that bit different and doing it so well. Cracking portrait .Hope he likes it.

Don't fight it. Love is something that should be embraced rather than defied.

Brush work needs looking at, as it appears to impinge on the jaw line which looks amateurish at best. Specular highlights in the hair are distracting and in a commercial environment would be removed.
However, as you say, it's just a bit of fun (which photography, in my mind, should always be) and so such critique is irrelevant.

A good fun picture.
