Cool Joe

Since I posted a psychotic shot of Jide on sunday, I have felt really bad ..........................................YEA RIGHT!!!! anyway I decided to post a "cool" shot of Mr Alakija. Yeap back to the studio flash stuff. This shot is PPed with a bit of cropping, softening and addition of slight grain. So whatcha think?

Thank God its friday

He does look cool indeed. Dude, whatever you do, I don't think you'll be able to make it up to Alakija in the next fifty or so years. That photo, man, that photo... Are you kidding? smile

Lovely pose, lovely capture Absolutely lovely shot, Different.

Only small niggle I have, Lighting, little too harsh on the lips for me, would have preferred a more subtle lighting but since I bet you wanted it exactly nthis way, I WILL now shutup smile

This is such a cool shot! Every works on this one, from seeing the top of the hat to drawing your eyes down to his lips then to the colors of his shirt.

Composed and lit superbly, top stuff.

Can I ask why you chose to add grain? I am only asking as it's something that often consider so wondered what your thoughts were and why you chose to add it to this particular image?
sk: i forgot to remove it, as I initially was gonna change to black and white

Wow, that's a really sexy image. You can't see his eyes but you can "feel his look" if that makes sense? I love, it's wonderful

I think I disagree with Suby on the mouth. (him saying "too harsh a light on it". That guy has such amazingly sensual lips they're worth highlighting and to me it doesn't affect the balance of the image. Maybe it's a "woman-thing" ?
I think this is a very good photo, like every photo on this blog... but I would not have added grain. but it's only a "student opinion"! smile
