    No but Mike's attempts at lifting the whiteness in the eyes has left them looking dead and alien like. A note of caution to all others who try this.

    I think it was they had to hold the pose so long while I worked out the exposure ;)

    I do practically zero portraiture, but these three are probably my favorites. Taken at a family wedding. A shared moment in time between mother and daughter. They are a tad soft but I really didn't have time to faff about as I could see what was about to happen when mum whisked her up into her arms. I just pointed, zoomed and clicked. I'm glad I did though, and so was mum when she saw them.

    I like casual shots rather than staged :)

    I think this is (in my opinion) the most terrible thing to do to yourself, but she was so lovely AND quiet.

    Taken on the spur of the moment in London, I live with a sincere regret that I never took her address to send here a copy, to this day.

    Ah yes, I remember when Hockney first pointed that out. And demonstrated it by doing a painting in the same way on a TV programme.

    Brian Sewell went ballistic. He was VERY rude about Hockney. :eek:

    Brian Sewell did not have to go ballistic to be very rude to artists. He made his living being very rude to artists. I found him very entertaining.

    There are snaps and there are opportunities well taken on the fly. I especially like the well framed picture in a picture (frame 3). All are very attractive. Even Patrick Moore almost looks friendly, tolerant of being photographed,may I say.
