A good friend, who graciously helped me out with a few of my Portrait Class assignments, while attending Community College.

Really nice!

Would like to see a touch more light on the guitar since it is a secondary focus (no pun intended) on the image

I'm sure he was very happy to have such a great portrait. Great one!

Great capture but I do agree that a bit more light on his left side face and guitar might focus more attention to portrait.

Nice portrait.

You didn't ask for any C&C, so I'll take it down if you ask.

I'd like to see more light on the guitar as well.

It would be nice if the subject was actually fretting a note or playing a chord rather than just holding the neck.

I'd like to see more light on the LHS of his face, and tone the hair light way down.

Thanks for sharing.

I like it the way it is. To me it looks like he's playing the fifth fret harmonics, so that's perfectly reasonable, and if you count the frets down from the 14th fret at the body, that's exactly where his finger is.

I'm voting with Peter. I'm guessing web compression is sucking out the subtleties.

This is a very nice character study portrait where the execution is just right for the subject.

Thank you for your comments as they are greatly appreciated, I love critiques as it will only help improve my work. Trust me, he was playing the whole time that I was shooting, in fact, there were times when I had to ask him to stop momentarily.

Best wishes for the Holidays,

I'll take your word for it, as I know nothing about playing the guitar, . I am pleased with the way it came out as it was how I had envisioned it in my mind before shooting it. He was very pleased with it as well, which is all one can hope for.


Best Wishes for the Holidays,
