I did quite a bit of editing to this. I'm trying to find my own style cos i'm a bit all over the place with my shots and editing but then again its good to be able to show things from different perspectives and make some refreshing changes now and then.

Hubba hubba... first Jide, then you grin keep 'em coming.

Getting your own style of PP is definitely something most photographers look for. We could be seeing the birth of a new one.
E Etomi: Lol, i'll try and find more defined men to shoot. Thanks Mia

E Etomi: Thanks for commenting Johnnyg.
hey e,

i know the feeling....but i think that what you said, about showing things from different perspectives is true. also, i think that experimenting with different things opens up new ideas and avenues. i love the shot. love the pose, perspective, and angle. i also really love the way the light and smoke shower him.
E Etomi: Thanks Nicole, was really happy with the shot, apart from the sharpness or lack of

Wonderful shot. Colours and composition give this a really classy feel. The smoke in the overhead light really adds to the atmosphere.

I recently read an article from a professional portraitist who advocates lighting from above and shooting from below, which appears to be what you've done here.

It works!

This would suit me better if it was alittle sharper though.
E Etomi: I guess it does work. Thanks Chunter....wish it was sharper too but I love the shot so much, I put it up.
Nice work slight oof however?
E Etomi: Yup. Thanks Diego
