I love the emotion of this shot. Ive been a fan of yours for a while now and every shot I take I compare it to your work and your wonderful lighting. I just shot a model with wit tattoo and will be posting manyof them soon. I do have some up and if you have the time, i would love for you to see them [link] . Im not where you are yet but trying to get there.
What a fabulous face! He looks like a sweetheart of a guy, and probably very intimidating if he were to scowl or something, but here we see he's just a big teddy bear "powerpuff boy" of a guy. I love it. A fantastic portrait. You got the light spot on, too. But then, you always do that! I love the slight angle to this; it makes his waist look ridiculously small. Great composition on the inclusion of the tiny line of the top of his jeans. It really adds something to this.
