Shot with David today...I really like the results, but am curious to hear what others think.

I feel the most impact coming from the top shot. But the second is probably the weakest as his eyes look closed, not like he is looking away.
The third is good, the background coming in enough to be slightly distracting, love to see it toned down a liittle, good shot of him otherwise.
The last one is strong maybe punch up the saturation a bit but Im a saturation freak.
Some might think the kicker is too hot but I feel it adds to the intensity of the look.
Keep up the excellent work Jason, you are getting better each post.
Regards,
Stu

Hey Stu!
Funny that YOU would be the one to reply...I must admit that the first couple of shots are kind of inspired by that freckle shot you showed me in Atlanta last year.
Thanks for your feedback!
Is this a little better for the background?

On the first and second shots it looks as though he has stubble on his forehead, which I find distracting - without that, these would be really good. Perhaps go over his forehead with the Healing Brush in Photoshop?

Thanks...that was mostly what I was curious to hear reactions on...
I actually increased the contrast in his freckles and flaws for effect. Healing was the opposite of what I wanted to do.

You can see in the sunglass image, what his complexion is really like.

Thanks for your comments...I am interested if more people like the effect, or would prefer a generic "smooth" skin version.

#1 outstanding, I wouldn't change anything. Very strong image!
#2 for me doesn't work, you may want to bump up the contrast a little higher.
#3 your second version is better, I think you may want to go a little lighter on the background only to really make him stand out
#4 very well done, you may want to go just a touch darker in the shadow areas

Keep raising the bar!

Hey Jason,
I really like the lighting set-up in the last shot . . . would you mind sharing the details with me, I like the strong composition : )
Thanks

Hey Jorge,

It is actually pretty simple...I had one strobe with an umbrella off camera left as the main light....and another bare bulb strobe just over his shoulder.
