Anywho, this is another set in my personal portrait series, 'Photographing the Pupils,' whereby students of mine sit for an impromptu session. I particularly like how these ones turned out. Real, raw, and unretouched. While most would prefer to look perfectly made up and flawless, I find beauty in the slight imperfections and assymetrics of our faces.
While taking these portraits of my students, Olga was interested in my Kiev, so I gave her a chance to shoot me with it. She struggled with the manual focus and the inverted image in the WLF, but she clearly nailed it - focus is spot on, and she placed a pretty decent key triangle using the single key light. Well done!
And Mike gets a bonus shot because his shirt was awesome:
