This was shot around Christmas 2008 but I only just got around to processing it. I had setup in a room and just had people come down and made several pictures of each of them. At the time my only camera was a Fuji point and shoot. It was a terrific session and produced at least four portfolio pictures. That is quite outstanding for me in one session of around 300 total shots.

This one wasn’t even in my first list of likely shots to use. I have long believed (but have seldom practiced with photography) that you shouldn’t edit anything you create for at least a few days. That way you can separate yourself from your thoughts at the time of the shoot and look at the results with a fresh eye. At the time I thought I had a much better shot of this guy but looking at that one now it doesn’t work nearly as well as this one.
