Jeremy - portrait

By KingArthur
Was indoors experimenting with some lighting and techniques when my second son, Jeremy, entered the room ...

I got hold of this portrait of him, himself not too keen on having his photograph taken. I retouched lightly in PS, adjusting levels and some slight sharpening ... the result looked good and I decided to post, with Jeremy's consent of course lol!

Should look better larger, thanks for viewing.

A fine-looking boy, Joe, and you've done him justice here. The skin tones are great, and I just love those freckles. Lovely work.

This is definately a "boy" photo.
You've certainly done it justice.
I love that look he's giving you, which you have captured so well.
A handsome young man.

Great looking boy, captured very nicely. Yes, he wasn't terribly pleased with the picture taking.

Nice portrait of Jeremy. I think I can safely say at that moment you were not exactly the apple of his eye, yet he must have forgiven you by letting you post it, glad he did!

He reminds me so much of my son having his photograph taken a case of "do i have to?" or "hurry up" lol. You've caught his expression perfectly in this one and I think Jeremy should be really proud of it... well done

It's a pity that he shows a dislike to having his portrait taken, so he isn't likely to make a living as a model, but it's a good candid shot. -Brian.

Shame his expression is not more 'friendly'. It is however beautifully exposed and you have got the detail absolutely spot on! Wonderful freckles (although he probably doesn't think so!)

A lovely image of Jeremy! A good portrait of a handsome young man, and good eye contact too Joe, even if he was an unwilling model lol.

Well done Joe.

He really doesn't want to be photographed, does he? Captures 'that age' really well!
