    What's the lead to think you may have been at his work?

    Yes - the title is not very fortunate but I like the picture anyway :)

    Well done! camera angle, light, pose, background. Maybe a bit too dark on the right bottom...but only maybe :)

    This works well. I suspect the subject is not as menacing as you have made him!

    Thanks Iuisport, Serge1975 and Nimbus your appraisal of my photograph is much appreciated, i think it's vitally important for me at least to keep checking in with reality and others that enjoy imagery.

    All the best to the 3 of you, happy snapping.

    Chris :)

    Hi Craig20264

    When he asked to go through the memory card and delete all the unflattering ones do you think I said no?

    I just didn't tell him the D7000 has 2 cards...

    That's a stunning photo, with great colours. I like the face on the wall staring at the subject. Excellent!

    Very nice and great lighting too.

    Did you use any fancy lighting set up?

    Wow, really positive and helpful feed-back, thanks for taking the time everyone.

    This specific shot is one of the break-out portraits I took while shooting a "fly on the wall" series at my local Tattoo studio. The guy who agreed to being photographed was having it done as a memory and tribute to his lost younger brother.


    For those who were interested, I used a single SB700 up on a light stand camera left, it had a small grid over the flash head to help minimise light spill. The flash was triggered by the pop up slave built into the D7000. It was at the rear of the Tattoo Studio on a blinding bright lunch time. I had the flash set to 3/4 power and the 50mm 1.4 lens stopped right down to f8 to darker down the environment. I kept close and tight with the 50mm to try and exaggerate the his form, I also tried some shots with a reflector lower camera right but it reduced the drama I was after in the picture.
