My friend J needed a photo of himself to give to his family at Christmas. Of course I took advantage of the opportunity to practice my male portrait photography and he was a very good sport about it (especially since it was pretty chilly out). Photographing guys can be a challenge because I don't always know the right poses. I definitely need more practice, but I was happy with how these turned out.
J said he'd be slightly embarrassed by this blog post, but he'd live with it. :) Hey, I'm not here to embarrass! But I can't really talk since I hate photos of myself. My friends (and even strangers) are nice to put up with my need to practice and post my photography. Thank you!
I turned a couple of these black and white, but I like the color version as well. Here's a side-by-side so you can decide which you prefer. I welcome your thoughts!
The one on the right is probably my favorite (and yes, it's ever so slightly different from the one above). The dark green background and J work well together.
Okay, so I don't have a million guy poses up my sleeve...I'm working on it!
Tada! I'm hoping to get back into more regular posting since my schedule is about to calm down, so check back.
