    Very nice Joe. High speed film portraiture is an art unto itself. Essentially pointillism. Semi-goth chicks (or I don't know, they hate labels don't they) make excellent subjects for impressionistic shots. It enhances the mood they strive for with the black and metal.

    Thanks Chris. Pointillism - that is it, you are absolutely right!

    But sry, she's not one of those goth (or semi goth) girlies. Definitely not.

    something else: I'm getting more and more in love with the quadratic format. It totally reduces the image on the content and don't unterline the content of the image (eg the horizontal format with landscapes). For me, the quatratic format is neutral but not borring.

    Yeah, I guess I'm an oldf't. When I see black clothing, dark makeup, black neck scarf, and facial piercings, I think gothie.

    But tell us of this quadratic format. I must have been spending too much time under my rock - what is it? (it looks kinda like rule'o'thirds...)

    With quatratic format I mean that it has 600x600 pixel - so it is a quadrat
    for example 600x900 pixel would be horizontal format, right?

    But you are right, her eyes are quite in the "rule'o'thirds" sheme.

    just some misunderstandig...

    Ah! Thank you! Deutsch ist nicht meine erste Sprachte. We would say 'square format' in English, but quadratic makes sense to me now!

    I like the picture.

    And you are right, square photos are very nice.

    Ok, thanks. Square format makes sense too. I will remember this for the future.

    Your German seems too be quite good, but it is Sprache not Sprachte :wink:

    :BigGrin: I learned it in the early 70s and only get to practice on a friend who has lived here so long that when he goes back to Germany they tell him he's got an American accent. Of course we tell him he sounds German.

    Nice portrait Joe, I really like the grain there. Could you tell us what film you were using and your settings ?

    Yes...Nice portrait.

    Man...when I was a kid they were called Death Rockers...don't think the Goth thing was used yet.

    I used to know Roz from Christian Death....

    Lovely portrait! I love how basic and up front it is, yet it is definately not boring! Grain looks really nice here - Delta 3200?
