The "G" according to Skee!

Had a busy weekend....but what's new :-)

Why is this picture up?, well today i've decided to put my own head on the chopper!

This shot to me illustrates the true meaning of  black and white photography... BOLD, DRAMATIC, SHARP CONTRAST and IN YOUR FACE...BLAM!. It delivers that "Knockout blow!"

This is what ive been talking about, a wide range of greys, and a creative use of light!

This weekend just gone , Jide (Alakija) and myself did a photoshoot in a studio (Thanks Adam for your hospitality....we'll be back!)

While we were waiting in between shots, we did a few portraits of ourselves for fun...I was suprised by the results!

The above pic was shot by Jide... nice one mate, using my camera...I think he'll now want one :-)

PP, Cropping and b/w conversion done by skee using C1Pro and CS2

So if you didn't know....well, now you know... Guys, Girls, Mums and Dads...Its Monday again... WELCOME TO SKEETOWN!

The word that springs to mind is "powerful shot". Some seriously tight cropping that definitely enhances the shot, lovely monochrome conversion.

I see you guys are looking after MY 5D smile Treat with care.

Suby likey.

P.s.

What happened to my invite to the shoot?

Well now I can put a face to your name Mr. Skee! This is a wonderful portrait and you do have the color contrasts down pat that's for sure. The focus on your eyes in this pic is my favorite part. Very strong shot!

Too late - they've already used the word that instantly sprang to mind when I saw this for the first time.

Powerful expression. Powerful image. Well done the pair of you.

By the way, no need to send any boys round - just send this photo. It frightens the wits out of me.
Mr Skee: Lol! Thank for the comment!

Am I the only one who wanted to get a rule to measure & compare his trumpet to his arm? I like the lil graffiti thing you did with your name in the background. I love this! But then, I'm a sucker for black and white pictures
Mr Skee: well one needs big arms to carry around the whole day one's camera bag! ;-)
