Laurence asked me nicely a couple of weeks ago if we could go out and get some portraits of him because he needed some new photos. I accepted the offer because I just had to use my new T2i. These shots were amazingly clear and large! I just loved it. The wall that Laurence is standing up against is some worn out insulation on the building. So it seems anyways.
Editing:
Editing portraits of guys is always easy and usually doesn’t take as long. Thank goodness. However, the wall that Laurence is standing next to was originally yellow and I liked it for the texture of it, but not the color because it was too much of a conflict with his shirt and such. So, I changed it. It has a nice purple/gray effect on it. After which, I did the basic portrait enhancements such as: Brighter eyes, whiter teeth, sharper and vignette added.

Once we got past the awkward phase of someone taking pictures, Laurence really settled into the “spotlight” and started thinking of any pose he could possibly do that he thought would look good. This one was a good one. I was standing a platform above him and got this shot with my zoom lens. It turned out and is one of my favorites that we got.
Editing:
I didn’t do too much on this photo. It was a bit blue, so I warmed it up. After which, I did the basic portrait enhancements such as: Brighter eyes, whiter teeth, sharper and vignette added.

Waiting | All aboard!

This is right when we started taking shots. The expression on Laurence’s face kind of shows his awkwardness towards the camera. He didn’t know what to do despite my coaching efforts. But, he found his groove.
Editing:
There just wasn’t a lot to do with this photo. It’s one that Laurence liked and figured I would stick up here. The biggest thing was that I warmed him up and kept the background cool. After which, I did the basic portrait enhancements such as: Brighter eyes, whiter teeth, sharper and vignette added.
