The first 2 are from the summer palace in Beijing and the last is from Terelj Mongolia.
C&C is always welcome. Cheers

zmikers' people photos
The first photo captures a stunning pose, the second a more relaxed posture, both capture great colour and detail. Beautiful.
The third is a classic, "human in landscape" capture. The ordinariness of the activity highlights the dramatic landscape leading up the valley to the silhouetted ridge-line against the sky. I like the trees on the ridge too.
PS: SharonD, I really like that shot of your husband too, it kinda reminds me of a portrait photo/painting of Bob Dylan I once saw by Franklin Johnson, where Bob was also looking sideways over his shoulder, the picture was called "Don't look back" or something like that.

Yeah I've actually been busy lately. I only have two lights right now. If I had another then I would have placed it really low to the ground pointing up to the background. Also I can use a different color background to help with hair getting lost.

This is the first people picture of mine that I felt was worthy of submitting here. I don't tend to take as many people shots as I do other things so its rare I come across one I really like. Its not exactly the original, I did some editing in lightroom but I like the way it turned out. I like the isolation and the fact that he's faceless. It kind of adds to the mystery of who he is I guess. Hope you enjoy, C&C is welcome. Thanks

These two shots where a bit of an experiment - trying to create a studio lighting effect without studio lighting. Both exposures where long ~15 sec and a torch (flashlight for all the Americans out there!) was moved around the subject to create the multiple light source effect. The only problem with this technique is trying to get a sharp photo involves a LOT of trial and error :P The BW shot is a photo of me so i had to get my flat mate to do the lighting in that one. Im keen to hear what you all think / any suggestions for improvement or a simpler method to get the same effect on a budget.

Thank you, Benjamin, I'm sure lovin' the 50mm. I tried tracking down the pic of Bob you mentioned, but couldn't find it through a google search anywhere, but it was a fun search. Cheers!
