One of my fave family photographers, Tara Whitney, is the Guest Photography Judge at iheartfaces.blogspot.com for this week’s photo challenge theme, which is “Dramatic B & W”. Other then being a black & white image, the only other criteria (besides being ‘Dramatic’) is that the image contain a human face, so I hope this image fits the bill!
I captured this image back in 2007 with my first Canon SLR, the 30D. I have since upgraded, first to the Canon 5D and then to the Canon EOS-1D MarkIV. This image was shot with the Canon 100 mm f2.8 macro lens, which does a fabulous job of showing amazing detail in portraits. I have this image framed in my bedroom, and also printed as a 20×20 metallic print, which is one of the samples I show at the in-person proofing meeting.
I debated entering with this image, but wasn’t sure there was enough ‘face’. The second image in this blog posting, of my daughter Rebecca, is also a favourite…alas, I can only enter one, so this is it! 🙂
