    Wouldn't it be better to move this thread here so it becomes gear and format agnostic?

    Or is this supposed to be Medium Format portraits only?

    Obviously that assumes the OP is interested in that, which is why I asked the question.

    The trouble with this thread is that I'm not sure if I'm "liking" the skill of the photographers or the beauty of the subjects....

    I don't mean this in a negative way at all. There certainly isn't a problem - just a philosophical observation. As Charles S says above, the same could be said of landscapes. A stunning view or a stunning women (I think all the portraits here have been of women) might be photographed in a pedestrian way and still get lots of "likes" because of the beauty of the subject.

    Much harder is to produce a stunning image of a relatively ordinary subject (or a plain woman). For example, some of Alan S's work is not of dramatic scenery but he makes beautiful images of it. On the other hand, if you're in the American West there's lots of dramatic scenery and it's easier (in my view) to produce dramatic images. Which isn't to take anything away from those of us who craft great images of mountains and deserts!

    I think the difference may be that a great photo adds to the subject by bringing out traits that might otherwise not be seen. Just my 2 cents worth!

    One thing I am totally sure of is that the images presented here by people whom I consider friends though we've never met, are superb and inspiring. I learn a little every time I visit this site.

    Greg,

    The portrait of your daughter is simply stunning! I'm even more impressed that you got her to sit for you (my daughters would meet any such requests with eye rolls and hasty exits).

    Thank you John! Maybe its because she has been my muse from a very young age, I am not sure, but she is incredibly patient with me.

    Re: How about some portraits

    Here's a different sort of portrait. The subject is a friend and fellow photographer who wanted to do a photo representing her struggles with bouts of anxiety. She described the feeling of being trapped and unable to breath and wanted to use plastic wrap to illustrate her experience.

    Over the last few years I've been honored to have captured a few images where the subject felt an intense connection with the image since it reflected a specific aspect of their life ranging from living life in a wheelchair to being a survivor of domestic abuse.

    Old portrait taken in studio with my first MFDB, a Kodak 645M and Mamiya AFD. It was expensive (to me) at the time, and I figured I wouldn't need to buy another (*cough*) MFDB again...

    The 22MP backs are magical. I've strayed from my 39MP back to my 22 for the past year.

    Re: How about some portraits

    since we are showing off portraits from the older fat pixel backs, figured some of my older work from the P45+ days could make an appearance! (yes it not those nice 9 micron sized pixels but it will do ).

    Re: How about some portraits

    I gotta dig a bit to find portraits taken with an older MFDB. This is one of my favorite B&W studio portraits taken with a Phase P30. Backdrop by Maheu.

    Re: How about some portraits

    I very rarely get chance to shoot a proper lit studio portrait these days but I really should try, love this shot of my neighbour from a while back, it was just a bit of fun so didn't bother doing too much with the crappy background but I still really like it, it marked the point where I really started to enjoy the GFX.

    Oh well some nostalgia from years ago...- My father-in-law made with a Hasselblad 203FE +110FE and CFV11 down at the farm.
