Portraits are not my cup of tea.

Beside some experiments with Martine , I take just a few portraits. I find it very difficult too, with the flash at night. Difficult to avoid the glare with the built-in flash.

Well here I wanted to capture a young lady who spent a photoshoot with both of us a few days before. She was not my model, we were her models (^_^). Martine asked me, and Francesca was kind enough to accept to pose with her. This was at the hotel lobby in the evening

So no soft box used , just the straight annoying flash. Still I like the natural look of both ladies.

Color shot converted to B&W. Image uncropped.

Olá Robert
I like very much the way that you celebrate things...there are always a good atmosphere and energy...even in perfect moving car or with martine or a friend. Martine and Francesca are very well captured with a good sharpness and a very good B/W. There was not box but the light is good.
Have a cup a tea and after if you like it one of Champagne, too.
Hapiness is a very precious thing.
Um abraço

Hi Robert,
A fine black & white duo portrait. Excellent handling of light and contrast. The sparkling eyes of both ladies are well captured and perfectly sharp! Great B&W presentation.

Hi Robert,
What a beautifully exposed shot,here you creatively used the built in flash and I can see dark areas with while areas but the beauty is that you showed all of the tones with nice accurate exposure,lovely pose with beautiful framing,very well taken and shown beautiful expressions.

Thank you for sharing
Have a nice weekend
