I came first in the challenge for red the the most recent tuesdaychallenge. I might add that I came first for 'buttons as well but over the following two days I got pushed down to third. Bear in mind, voting had ended! It's a conspiracy I tell you!
As for the portrait of yesterday thank you for the comments. I was rather pleased with the way it came out. Portaiture is most definitely not my forte. I knew his attention had been diverted away from me and took my chance. This could, therefore also be considered reportage, ish.
The idea I had in mind for the day was to shoot ISO400 and convert to black and white as can be seen here. The grain present here isn't quite what I was after though. I got the idea from a girl who specialised in this and shot with a certain type of specialist black and white film. I don't feel that it will be as easy to emulate. The texture to her images was lovely. Alas, she doesn't have any images online.
