Wow, is that a camera or a space gun? Very good portrait even if a little bit more contrast would add in my opinion.

 

I too like this portrait and I share the piece of advice about the contrast. The picture is certainly worth it...:)

 

All the best

Looks like a fairly late (1950s) Speed Graphic with a more modern lens (180mm?) and Polaroid back. The space gun is a Mecablitz 45 or 60.

 

I think I disagree about the contrast, because increasing the contrast more than a very little would mean losing the shadow detail in the subject's left sleeve and under his hat. Also, I like the way the picture as it stands is reminiscent of the sharpness and subtle gradation that a 5x4 camera gives you.

Chang Yeon Cho-

 

Lovely, and I agree with everything except the suggested added contrast for the reason John states.

Thanks everyone. the result I got is exactly what John Stated. It wanted to add a bit more contrast but then there needs to be a bit of sacrifice in therms of either the shadow detail or highlight detail. But just to appease everyone I tried a little more contrast.

Chang, that is not really the case. You CAN have both. If you really want to know how, send me a PM & I'll give you the low down. Louis would be proud to have a copy of this.
