#6: Man with casual clothes and dreamy eyes
So, out of all the wonderful and expressive shots I did with this man, this is the one photo that made it into my top 30 best selling images I submitted in the first half of 2010. Lessons learned? Long hair and pony tail is not a commercial look for men? Frame wider? Have them do a more relaxed, upbeat expression? No nudity? Well I have photos that would refute all of these things, except maybe for the long hair / pony tail bit on men. In any case I thoroughly enjoyed this shoot and I’ve took some chances on it, with depth of field, lighting and direction. So whether or not it sold like crazy or not is not the only thing important… Enjoy… tomorrow, we get in the top 5!
