I hate the way I look.
I also know that my favorite model, my wife Linda, hates it whenever I stick my camera in her face. Which happens a lot.
So, in the interest of keeping wifey happy - and learning the nuances of studio style portraiture - I'm stuck with the only model who follows my direction without much complaint. Me.
It's not pretty. But it is insightful to me. I'll post my experiments from time to time.
Enjoy. Or not.
