    Just some unsorted portraits, most from a session with the family
    where I tried out some new photo gear

    Imitating Edward Steichen, are we? Or at least his propensity to light
    everything but the face. The first one, though, just doesn't work: the DOF is
    simply too low.

    OK, I'll give you equal time to jab back at me:

    I did all except the one of the Mayor. Sorry they're so small; they were
    bigger when I turned them in. :^)
    {The picture of the Council Chamber is mine too.)

    Not knowingly :)
    Oh, but that is one of my favorites! But, tastes vary :)
    No "jabbing" required :)

    I don't have a problem with a photographer adopting a style for a set
    of photos. These are arty "mood" portraits, not photographs to show
    what the subjects look like as you would do in a webpage about a
    group.

    I'm not particularly in favor of the style adopted, but if that's the
    style intended it's done very well.

    #6 is the least well-done in my opinion because the bright area
    overwhelms the dark area. There's some of that in #7, but the girl's
    face still comes out. The pose is very good in #9, but there's just
    too much emphasis on the hair compared to the face.

    #10 is probably the best and the one the subject is most likely to
    like. Again, though, the light/dark emphasis seems reversed with the
    shirt being light and the face mostly dark. The shirt is the mass and
    disturbs the balance.

    I'd take out those upper corners on the background of #10. It looks
    like one of those desk mats with a blotting paper insert.

    Overall, a good series.
