Some B+W film portraits I took, as always I am looking for pointers and suggestions. Film used was Fuji Neopan 400cn B+W.

Thanks.

Shot 2 here is the strongest for me - LOVE the expression.
I wish the boy were looking straight into the camera in shot 3 - he has a movie star look about him.

But the lighting here, imo, is way too harsh in all 3 of these shots.
Hope that helps - Marko

very cool shots, but have to agree with Marko the lighting is too harsh

I agree, I think the light is a little on the hard side, I am not sure where I when wrong with these, It is sunlight and I was shooting with film but I metered it using the camera meter and then I thought I under exposed it, obviously not!
Thanks for the feed back..

Love these captures okmqaz. Lighting may be slightly hot, but then again shot three would lose so much facial detail if lighting was brought back at all. By looks of it, was quite harsh lighting, and you did very well considering.
(would love to see shot three done with a reflector off to his front right)
