Lovely portrait, you've captured something soulful and enigmatic.

Is it worth more than convenience to have a printer? I'm sitting on the fence about getting one. I print mostly 8x12 at a lab, and I am not completely happy with their quality, especially for B&W prints, they always have a barely visible, but still, unwanted tint (used to be red, now it's blue). ;) I wonder what is better - switch my lab to a better one, or buy my own printer. I never need to have a print "right now".

Superb lighting. Makes me think of an Annie Liebowitz photo.

How large did you print for the exhibition?


Thanks Arcady! if only I had multiple lights... :) it was a single light (a striplight I think) with a reflector. Maybe now I have a justification to go and buy another strobe :). I think I did not have the nose "blown out" in the print, it may be the way it is saved in this small JPEG, but have to check it. Overexposing the collar does not bother me too much, even if it is there. The print is I think 15x20 in 20x24 frame, had it printed in the lab way back last year when I did not have my own printer. Now I print mostly 12x18 (the maximum Epson R2400 permits).

Wow, it's amazing what a slight change can make. There is so much more depth and interest to this photo now. The first edit was good, but you've taken it to a whole new level with this version. Quite lovely.

this is a wonderful portrait!
I haven't seen the earlier version, but would say this one is expertly handled...
I looked..yes this is WAY better...

i think this really adds a ton of visual interest when compared to the first shot.
