Hmmmm.....I could just eat that camera.....Ahhhh....bisto!

Don't you just like the expression on this guys face? What does it say to you?

To me this is a typical Alakija portrait.....very dramatic.....tell me what you think.

lovely shot, very funny too. I will be tempted to play with the hightlights to get some more details on his white shirt, the whites there look blown out.
Jide Alakija: Yup, the whites on the shirt are blown out, for the blog I guess it doesn't matter, but thanks for pointing that out. I processed it whilst on the phone and also 5 mins before the 12am shutterchance deadline....Jide you're giving loads of excuses.....oh what the heck let's enjoy the shot!

Thanks D.
LOL. Cool expression! Very nice one smile
Jide Alakija: Thanks Tomas.
the guy is almost walking out of the frame. SHARP BOWY.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Atunbi, good understanding of light can really do wonders to a 2D picture.
I love his expression. The DOF is so intense he looks like he's about to jump out at me. Nice. Yup d white is about to affect my eyes
Jide Alakija: Sorry about the whites, I didn't think it was that big an issue. sad

The bowtie just had to be crooked... The expression just wouldn't have worked any other way... You don't see something like this everyday... such intensity in the eyes, which you enhanced I'm sure! Nice one...
Jide Alakija: Shhhh....

It reminds me of what I would have looked like taking a picture at his age.
