Hi guys/gals

Met up with some old friends today, we planned to take some informal shots, but the weather wasnt on our side. So we decided to just hang out and get something to eat.

We have scheduled a real studio session and some more serious location work. They are good sports helping me building my portfolio.

Anyway here are some shots we got before we called it a day. Smile

No lighting aid today, natural light with the 85mm/1,4 +D2x.

C&C welcome as always.

Looks like difficult conditions Martin but the results are awesome. You have very photogenic friends!
No 1 is a real standout - perfectly exposed to show the falling snow and the snow on the tips of his hair.

To me too Big Grin

Martin has lovely eyes... and my favorite is #2... Great picture and model...


Moises... He has lovely smile... and it is difficult to pick a fav because I like both... but I think the second one is my fav because his picture makes me smile... there is a reaction and I love this with pictures...


Very nice B&W conversion as well Paul...

Look forward to see more pictures of your friends... Smile

Thanx Chris, much to kind.

As it happens, this friday i just registered my company name and applied for a "tax bill" (dont know the term in english, its the form you fill in so that you can do business without getting the irs on your back.)
And my website is soon to be online. Big Grin

Thanx for the kind words.

Thanx Shawn glad you liked them.

I was kind of dissapointed at first since we planned alot more, but was happy that there was a few that came out alright.

More importantly the models where very pleased (their wifes as well lol) so we have booked a real studio session in two weeks. Luckily i dont have to use my make shift studio this time, One of the guys (not part of this shoot) is a Computer tech at a school, where we will have the session. Will be nice to have no height or space limits.

Thanx for looking.
