A senior portrait session I did a few weeks ago. This young man had intense eyes and a stare. Natural light only, added some contrast and a coffee filter.

I love the pose. It's very different and it really brings your attention to his eyes.

Wow! What a beautiful creative pose for a guy. And what a way to fully capture those amazing eyes. Are you charging a thousand dollar sitting fee for your portrait shoots yet? I'm sure you are becoming quite famous in your parts :)

Hi Jason...it is a birthmark. A coffee filter is just a brown tint filter that I downloaded into Lightroom. If you have Lightroom, there are a ton of free filters you can find. Just google it!!

interesting pose! great tonality and the single leg adds depth.

I'm going to start off my saying I love this shot, but I'm going to ask a question too. I know how hard it is to make one of these "laying on the ground" shots work, so I'm impressed to start with. The DOF is perfect and adds a lot to the shot. The lighting is wonder as well with great depth a great tonality across his face. So now I'm going to ask about the lightness of the jeans on his visible leg. The jeans are brighter than his face and draw the eye up a bit in the frame. There is nothing wrong with this, but I'm just curious if you were concerned about it or had decided it was an important element of the composition?

GREAT pose....I too will be putting this in my memory bank!

Wow, what an excellent and dramatic pose! Shallow (but not too shallow) DOF works great here. Regarding the slight tilt of the horizon, I think it works here, gives it a more lively feel.

Typically wonderful work from you. With such proponents of the art contributing, I think we are in for a bit of a treat with this side challenge.

Would you be able to add the technical data? I'm particularly interested in lens and aperture information. Many thanks.

I really really love the tones and perspective. Your dof rocks on this too. The only thing I would change, for me, is to level the horizon. It seems to dip to the right which you were probably going for but I would change it cause I'm so square :-) LOL

I like the perspective, I'll have to remember this!
