2005-03-10: Dan sells Outreach magazines near my apartment, he always has a good word for people.
Great portrait, a lot of character and contrast.
Another nice portraiture shot filled with character. BTW what made you decided to make this picture colored instead of BW?
I know you'll get lots of feedback, one way and the other, about the colour portraits, but let me just put in my vote. I'm really liking them -- keep 'em coming.
fellas with beards are great to shoot, I like it.
Love this kind of portraits. Great work!
Looks great. You must have a very good way with people.
Another fab one Miles!
A classic street portrait-- you can just imagine the rest of the crowded street behind him. I envy you having access to such great photographic subject matter.
I notice on this one, like the others, that you manage to get a good color balance without oversaturating which is popular on some other photoblogs :-)
Thanks all. I guess I'm going through some different methods with my shots at the moment, this one is literally straight out of the camera, I didn't do anything to it, I didn't even attempt to convert to b+w. Maybe I'll try that now :)
i think this works better in colour than it would in b&w. I like the colour in his hat - gives it a more comtemporary potrait look... nice one as always miles.
Miles, I saw that you shot this with your 50mm lens. What camera settings did you use? I'm just starting to try portraits and love the way you captured this one.
Thanks, this was taken at 1/1250 and f2, 200ISO. The sky was overcast which I think it ideal for these kind of shots.
Dan's a photogenic guy. The sharpness of the hairs in his beard is great! Was that your point of focus?
Wrinkles are telling his story enough sufficiently as much as his words.
So cool and strong snap. I love this.
Focus was manual but I was trying to get his left eye. On the full size version you can see his right eye is out of focus a bit so a smaller aperture might have been more appropriate.
Another beautiful portrait that captures not merely what the subject looks like but also tells a story. Or rather makes your mind start guessing the story of the persons life from the very moment you look at the picture..
I love the last two portraits that you posted, really well done. Great job with the focus and depth of field as well. It may be noticeable on the full size version that the right eye is out of focus but you definetly can't tell here, both eyes look tack sharp. Keep up the great work.
Same thoughts as on the previous shot. I like your full face work. I like it a lot more in color.
I am so digging this modern day viking portrait! Funny thing is I knew a guy who looked just like this guy and his name was Dan too. Perhaps there are some pods somewhere.
Miles, I definitely prefer your color portraits. And I must say this is a wonderfully captured one. Btw, I cold not make out the background on the right side.
@Zishaan: Hehe, i think that's why miles made it unrecognisable. :D
Hi Dan, nice to meet you, big boy!
hey miles, your pics lately are superb.
check this out. ryan from snowsuit (based in detroit) also snapped this guy while in toronto
Thanks Matt, I remembered that I'd seen a shot of him somewhere before, I actually looked through your archives from last summer because I thought it was you! I forgot that Ryan came to Toronto.
