Two Portraits - September 1 2017Friday, September 01, 2017

My fine ex-student David Macgillivray visited me today, the day after my melancholic birthday. It was a far nicer day as David brought a bottle of Argentine Malbec and some sweets. We chatted for hours and almost forgot the purpose of the visit.
He was to take my picture and I his. David had commitments so I quickly set up the softbox and tested the light at f-8 at 200 ISO. Since both of us have the same camera this was simple. I took two shots. For the first one I forgot to set my f-stop and it was terribly over-exposed. The second one was just right. I believe that David may have taken three. The one here is the one he sent.
I will have to wait for him to return from a trip to China to exploit my interest in people with very red hair!
