Fantastic set of portraits.
Isn't it just.Blimey, I am deeply humbled that anyone remembered that picture - seriously, thank you. Funny enough I'm not a great fan of the contrasty lighting style which he so often used! It can seem to be a case of inflicting a style on the sitter, although it does suit some of the more powerfully faced sitters. He did have a wonderful cast of sitters though.
as for my student effort, it was taken in Boults office by available light from a window beyond him on a rather dull day. The neg was underexposed and with a bit of flare and the only way to make anything of it was to print on grade 4. So it was a bit of a rescue job, which happily seems to be liked. Sometimes photography is as much about luck as careful planning and pre-visualisation.
