Assignment 1 from Photoworkshop - Portrait and Candid Photography by Erin Manning

I am very happy with how this one turned out - Although I have been in the same circles as this young man for the past 5 years - but he has been elusive when it comes to chatting or having pictures taken - so he has been very much a challenge to me, in a photographic sense.

So I am currently reading two photoworkshop books and trying to do the assignments and working my way through the lessons in the Aperature manual - looking for a workshop on lighting (that isn't the same day as my 50k run!) and looking very hard for a name for my soon to be fledgling photography business.

the name thing is very annoying...
I have a few, a very few, in mind but many of the obvious ones (and not so obvious ones) are taken -
and I need one before I get business cards and a website.

Yes my name would work but my name is NOT a rolling off the tongue sort.

When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
