Challenge: Light Source (Classic Editing)
Camera: Sony DSC-F707
Location: My home in Texas
Date: Oct 17, 2002
Aperture: f2.3
ISO: 320
Shutter: 1/30
Date Uploaded: Oct 17, 2002

I used a Home Depot 8" reflector and a 60 watt bulb placed to the right and slightly above and behind my subject. I took several shots, but I chose this one for the way the light met the shadow right down the center of his nose and mouth.

This is a very good portrait! Lighting/contrast is very good. Normally, this much darkness would get a too dark comment from me, but to me, in this case, I like it. Well done! 8 Swash

The black and white works great, and I like the directional lighting, but would have liked to have seen a little more of his features. lhall

Very distinguished looking gentleman. Good clarity for so little light. Would have liked a little more light for my taste. But well done. Well posed

straight forward.

While I find the compositional contrast (head and hand are straight up and down, while the body is slanted both down and forward) interesting, I think the lighting could have been improved

Good portrait pose and expression. I think it is a little too dark though. It's real close though. Good luck. - Inspzil

a little posed and the picture needs some white in it, it's some light gray to mostly dark and black, look at a histogram of it.

So good! This is what I wanted to do but I had no good modell. Instead I took my young son and got a pretty good shot but not as good as yours. Hope you win. Good luck! /carsten

This pose is too staged - it looks like he's hlding still, not reflecting. Also the whites need to be brighter. Could be a great photo if you play with the levels some more

Neat protrait, neat lighting. Well done. Justine
