[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
For portraits I am moving to film. I am now taking Digital, Color Film and Black and white Film for each pose. This is a shot from my Epson Scanner which works well in small formats but for larger prints I am deferring to a Lab with an Imacon Scanner.

I like the grain pattern both in black and white as well as color film. I get the feeling that the Dynamic Range is greater in the medium format. I have tried to get an answer to this question but haven't got it as yet. The surface area of the medium format is about 4 times that of a full frame digital sensor and this may make a difference.

Good, very good B/W. Great expression and the dress give a good dinamism to the photo.
um abraço

Well executed portrait in black and white. I like the sideways lighting and positioning of exposed side of the model mid-frame. Perfect choice of lens (focal length) for the job as well.

Hi Roger,
stunning portrait, the lighting on the lady's face is great and what a fantastic pose
well done both of you

Hi Roger,
Great balance of light and dark with some high lights on the side of the face and parts of the arm.Eye catching monochrome of the beautiful model.

Hello roger. Here is a very nice portrait. I must say that you pick your models ^ ^.
The black and white is beautiful and unobtrusive light comes gently illuminate the face.
