I think I met this dude once. In New Orleans. Just past sunrise. Trumpet case in hand. On his way home from a gig in the French Quarter. Great shot! :music:

I Really enjoy this., I did a study on different skin tones and this by far was my favorite to draw/study. african american skin is AMAZING. I love the golden touch it has to it and it makes everything stand out that much more! your a fantastic photographer dont ever stop./

This is a very handsome man and a beautiful portrait...

Do you get addresses of your subjects to send them a copy of their photos....I think that would be awesome to do...
And I carry my Pentax with me where ever I go also,
my sons say I look like a tourist and I told them that then no one will pay attention to me....

Do you use the 50mm 1.4 lens?

Also, do you have a full-frame camera or cropped?

Please tell me. :)
