    My pictures (Paul McEvoy)

    Hey,

    Is it ok to have a thread of your own pictures? I'm not sure why it wouldn't be, but no one seems to. I would actually love to see a number of people here have threads of their own work. So, let me be the first. If for whatever reason this is frowned upon, moderators, delete away.

    I had a nice little bump this week from the PRC (Photographic Resource Center) here in Boston. I was their featured photographer for their online NEO gallery in November. They did a really nice job putting this page together and said some very nice things. I have a pretty thin resume for exhibitions at this point, but it was a nice shot in the arm.

    Here's two images I shot recently. Both on TMY-2 4x5 in XTOL. This is part of a series I'm working on of members of "radical street bands". They come to Boston every year for a big festival called Honkfest. Anyway, thanks for looking.

    I like. An extreme close up face shot of the fellow with the tuba would be interesting. He has a look.

    Paul, I love your band portraits. You have a great series going here. What's especially good is that you obviously have rapport with the musicians, and that they are having a good time while you're photographing them.

    Portland has a couple of bands like this. I think they're great. People who spend years playing in brass bands shouldn't put their instruments in a closet once high school or college is over.

    Paul,
    First of all what a great idea for a new thread ! And it should have been obvious to us.
    Secondly, I really enjoyed looking at your fantastic images. You have established such a connection with each person that I feel you must know them all personally or something. Just great portraiture.
    Keep them coming.

    Regards,
    George.

    PS...Note to mods...don't you dare delete these images !

    Thanks guys for the comments and for allowing my little ego trip. George, you made my day in that both these portraits are of people I'd met approx 4 minutes before I took the picture. Part I think is that LF portraiture can be magic if you work it right, for a variety of reason (people don't know what to make of the camera, sense a kind of gravity to the situation and are just not doing the picture face) and part of it is that I really boss people around to get what I want. Anyway, thanks.

    And thanks Frank. I'd like to see a thread of your work.

    BTW I screwed up. The first picture above is 5x7 on HP5. The 2nd picture is 4x5 on TMY-2. I probably will end up sticking with the HP5 at some point just because I can shoot 5x7 and 4x5 with it, but I do like the TMY-2 for shooting at ISO 400.

    Randy, I don't have an extreme close up of Sousaphone Joe, but I do have this:
