    More Portraits?

    People must like to shoot people. The newest new thread it getting cumbersome, so I'm going to start another one. Just trying my hand at portraiture for the first time in decades.

    Arkady,

    Although such tight head-shots don't normally do it for me, I really love this one. terrific composition and lighting. The sepia tone does wonders for it as well.

    Thank you Jim!

    BTW, I day-dream about your old brass lenses you shoot with and sell. If I knew enough about them, I would buy one from you. Maybe sometime you can point me to a lovely, vintage portrait lens with lots of bokeh. I would love a creative casket set if there is such a combination for portraits. I know my Cooke is a damn nice lens and the only lens I use besides an older Docter 240/9, but something about the vintage being real vintage interests me.

    Best,
    Darr
